Hidden Families

Proboscis is collaborating with the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway University of London on a ‘Call to Action’ project (funded through the AHRC Connected Communities programme) working with prisoner’s families to understand how information is provided to families with someone in prison, what difficulties they experience and what changes could improve their situation.

The project also includes the participation of Action for Prisoners Families and we are working with NEPACS to engage with families at the Family Centre of a Category A prison in the NorthEast alongside clown/performance artist, Freya Stang.

A report on the overall project Families Disconnected by Prison is available on Bookleteer:
