Full Report: Prisoners’ children and families – Evaluation of Invisible Walls Wales (2017)

1. Overview
This is a summary of the key findings of an independent evaluation of Invisible Walls Wales (IWW), a Big Lottery funded project based in HMP Parc, aimed at maintaining and improving relationships between male prisoners and their children and families.
The overall conclusion was that IWW has been an exceptionally successful project, which has had a significant positive impact on the lives of the prisoners and families who participated, and has the potential to have a major effect nationally (and even internationally) on thinking, policy and practice in regard to the children and families of prisoners.
