Prisoners' children

Prisoners' children share their stories. 'Bethany' was eight when her mother went to prison, while 15 year old 'Jack' has spent his teens with both parents in jail. The charity Person Shaped Support says that if the government doesn't start funding support, more young people will end up offending and suffering from mental health problems. Around 230,000 children in the UK have a parent in jail and a recent study showed that over two thirds of boys with a father in prison go on to offend themselves.
