Every year in the UK, over 160,000 children suffer the trauma of parental imprisonment. We help to maintain the vital emotional bond between parent and child by enabling parents to make bedtime story CDs, DVDs and other educational gifts for their children. 50% of all prisoners lose contact with their families. Those that maintain contact are up to 6 times less likely to re-offend.
Storybook Dads helps maintain the vital bond between parent and child by enabling parents to make story CDs/DVDs and educational gifts for their children.
Back in 1997, Sharon was a single mum, working as a barmaid. Then a comment from a customer inspired her to go back into education and change her life. Within 10 years she had a masters degree, an OBE and had created the Storybook Dads charity which helps thousands of socially excluded families each year.
“I miss my Dad so much. When I feel lonely I listen to my CD and hearing his voice makes me feel better”
