Offenders' Families Helpline

Welcome to the National Offenders' Families Helpline website for England, Wales and Scotland

The National Prisoners’ Families Helpline can support you if a family member is in contact with the criminal justice system. We provide advice and information on all aspects from what happens on arrest, visiting a prison to preparing for release. We support families in England and Wales and you can find information about organisations who can support you in Scotland and Northern Ireland on our website.
