This qualitative research project aims to add to the understanding of children's needs by exploring their experiences of parental incarceration. The project will use information gathered from children, their caregivers and other key groups to provide new insights into how service systems might work more effectively and responsively together.
The outcomes are aimed to reduce children's future involvement in welfare, health and criminal justice systems, as well as improve their well-being and participation in society.
The funding for the program is from the Australia Capital Territory Health Directorate and SHINE for Kids.
