Along with supplying and running reading groups, PRG (now part of Give a Book) supplies books for Prison Family Days, so that parents can give their visiting children the gift of a book and read with them during their visits.
Family Days enable prisoner parents to spend time with their partners and children – talking, playing games and enjoying being together. We supply specially chosen books for each child visiting their parent in prison, along with a Give a Book bag, notepad and crayons.
We’ve been steadily growing our support for prison family days over the last few years…
In 2018 we supported 56 Family days in 52 Prisons, supplying books to over 2000 children.
