Manchester: 'Coping with Family Estrangement at Christmas' therapeutic work...

The festive season and its build up can be very isolating, upsetting and frustrating for those who are estranged from their family or a key family member.

This workshop is designed to help you to cope with the festive season and meet others who are in a similar situation - sharing thoughts and feelings about what family estrangement means for you at this time of the year. It will also help you to form mechanisms for supporting yourself, and to generate potential connections with others in your locality.

Across the prison population including men, women and youth at least 1 in 2 prisoners released will re-offend within a year. Offenders need information to make the right decisions about their lives in the community: where they will live; how they will gain a legitimate income; how they will rebuild their family ties, or form new ones. They should also be helped to find support for mental health needs and substance misuse.
