The Family and Friends Request Show – every Wednesday and Thursday on National Prison Radio and

Imprisonment can damage family life, separating prisoners from their children and loved ones and making regular contact a challenge.

Families are a vital source of emotional, practical and financial support that help prisoners get through their sentences and make the changes necessary to turn their lives around.

NPR promotes the importance of rebuilding or maintaining family relationships through its programmes, but also allows the friends and relatives of prisoners to send messages of love and support to their loved ones in prisons.
