My third film for the Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact), one of the UK’s biggest charities in the justice sector. This film documents a parenting course Time to Connect devised to keep offenders and their children better connected during a prison sentence, leading to better outcomes for both. I filmed with a group of young dads enrolled on the course in a Category B prison, working with photographer and long-term collaborator Christa Holka. I also wrote an accompanying article for the New Statesman in relation to government cuts that threatened the funding of programmes like these.
The film was launched at the House of Lords in front of MPs and funders. The film has been successful in getting other prisons to employ Pact to rollout the course.
Fathers in prison need support too
