The Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT) is currently undertaking research on prisoners’ families in Ireland.

The main objective of their research is to raise awareness about the grievances of prisoners’ families, including prison visits, financial difficulties and difficulties associated with separation. The trust intends to examine the issue of children’s rights from the perspective of a child. IPRT traveled to Cork, Limerick and Dublin in May to undertake interviews and focus groups. Prisoner family support organisations such as Eurochips’ members Bedford Row and St Nicholas Trust as well as CAP are assisting them in this project. The organisations will provide points of referral to the participants.
