In this essay, Kelli Brown explores what it is like to have a prisoner in the family. She derives much of her information from the work of the Young People’s Project (YPP) of the Action for Prisoners’ Families in England. This project aims to raise the profile of the needs of young people who have a family member in prison. The aim is being pursued by researching the needs of young people and by developing pilot projects in response. Brown discusses the effects of incarceration of a family member on a young person and summarizes several pilot projects to assist them.
