Child Loss Counselling Service for Women in Prison
The Child Loss Counselling Service for Women in Prison, run by CAREconfidential, helps women in prisons to come to terms with the devastating effects of Child Loss due to fostering, adoption, still birth, miscarriage or abortion through specialist support and counselling. For many of these women their sentence is a time of painful confrontation with their unresolved grief of losing a child, perpetuating anger and violent behaviour. Without adequate help and support, a cycle of crisis and crime is frequently the result. We want to break the cycle of re-offending by giving them the opportunity to work through the issues surrounding Child Loss and to find renewed hope in their lives.
