An estimated 200,000 children every year have a parent in prison in England and Wales and 10,000 visits are made by children to our public prisons every week. NICCO lists comprehensive information from voluntary and statutory agencies across England and further afield. The three Directories enable practitioners to search for Services, Resources or Research to inform their practice with children and families of offenders.
