Families of prisoners are the invisible victims of crime, serving their own sentence of isolation, stigma and financial struggle. These short films were commissioned by Prisoners' Families and Friends' Service to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by the families of prisoners, and to highlight the contribution they can make to reducing re-offending.
