Families Outside - Group Work & Peer Support

Delivered by Families Outside
Note: this service is only for children and young people
  • Talking therapies

The groups encourage children, young people, and adults who are impacted by a family members imprisonment to come together and support each other through their shared experiences. This safe, confidential space allows those who attend to share their own coping mechanisms and talk about their emotions. This improves their own well-being and empowers them to deal with challenging, and often complex situations.

The Glasgow group meets at Vox Liminus, Glasgow and offers peer support to children, young people (aged between 8-18 years) whether they have regular contact with their family member in prison, or no contact at all. The group runs from 5:30-7:30pm (please check our website for dates).

We also publish Activity Packs with lots of fun activities that children and families can do together at home or during a virtual visit with their family member in prison.

     As you get older it’s not unusual to spend more time on your own, particularly if you’ve lost loved ones or your health isn’t what it used to be.

    This is a free telephone befriending service for LGBT+ people who are lonely, isolated or in need of companionship and feel they would benefit from a friendly phone call every week or two.
