Vulnerable families: a study of the impact of parental offending and incarceration on children's developmental outcomes

 

Overview

The Vulnerable families research project examines the effects of parental incarceration on children's developmental outcomes. The findings will provide an evidence base for targeting support and intervention programs for families. The research will identify policies and prevention strategies that will interrupt the cycle of disadvantage for children of prisoners and prevent social exclusion.
