Child Impact Assessment Toolkit for Children whose Father/Parent is Going Through the Criminal Justice System: This is Me – Families Outside (December 2022)


Access to a co-created toolkit for professional working with children whose father/parent is going through the criminal justice system to ensure their voice ad support needs are identified.


Families Outside is a national charity that works solely on behalf of families in Scotland affected by imprisonment. Although youth justice services in England and Wales are not able access the support offered, they have published This Is Me: A Child Impact Assessment Toolkit (December 2022) that may be relevant for all practitioners working with children. The toolkit has been co-created with children and young people with lived experience of having a father/parent in the criminal justice system. The toolkit aims to ensure the voices of children are heard and that they get the support they need at the earliest opportunity.
