NEPACS 1:1 Support for Young People

NEPACS 1:1 Support for Young People

right

As part of a recent grant fund from Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Supporting Victims fund, Nepacs’ youth project are providing a dedicated 1:1 support and therapeutic listening service for young people aged 8-17 years-old who are affected by the imprisonment of a parent, sibling or grandparent. This service will provide a minimum of 3 x 1-hour sessions with a trained youth worker to help support positive wellbeing and reduce isolation for any young person who is currently struggling as a result of their parent, sibling or grandparent being in prison.

Nepacs is a long standing north east charity which provides support for prisoners and those subject to probation services in the north east and their families or significant others. We provide support for families from the point of arrest, through court, a prison sentence and on release. Details on all our services are available on our website www.nepacs.co.uk

A young person must be aged 8—17 to access the 1:1 service and you can contact the youth project coordinator directly on the details below:
