Outcomes for Children of imprisoned Mothers
The Joint Committee on Human Rights launches inquiry into the right to family life for children whose mothers are in prison
It is recognised that the Government is taking a number of positive steps both in its response to the Farmer Review and in the new Female Offender Strategy, to address some of the human rights issues and other outcomes pertaining to children of prisoners.
In order to ensure that the Government gets this right, the Joint Committee on Human Rights is interested to hear views about how the human rights of children whose mothers are in prison are promoted and protected and in particular on number of points that may need more attention.
The deadline for submissions is 15th October 2018
