The role of family support in resettlement: a policy briefing
19 July 2016 | Tagged with the theme: Family
In May 2016, BYC held a policy roundtable that brought together key stakeholders, senior policy makers and practitioners to consider the findings of BYC’s research into the role of family support in resettlement. This briefing summarises key themes and recommendations for policy arising from discussions. The meeting was hosted and chaired by Tim Loughton MP and heard from Professor Neal Hazel, Nacro’s Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Sally Benton, Lord McNally and Lord Harris. The meeting also heard from a young man who had served a custodial sentence; he reflected on how his experience of family support, facilitated by the secure unit, helped him turn his life around.
