Book help for prisoners' children

PUBLISHED June 2, 2005

How do you tell a five-year-old child their father has gone to prison - and may not be coming home for several years?

With more than 150,000 children experiencing the imprisonment of a parent every year in England and Wales, many families are faced with a tough choice of what to tell them.
Now the charity Action for Prisoners' Families (APF) has produced a series of books designed to help children and families cope better.
