What shall I tell the children?

This short leaflet details ways of dealing with telling a child that a parent is being sent to prison and can be used by both families and professionals. It covers questions such as what and when you might tell the child, how to deal with the future and whether other people need to know. The leaflet also contains a list of useful contacts for families which might help support a child in this situation.
