Mothers and Babies in Prison - SUCPS

SUCPS, Greater Manchester, UK

“Mothers and Babies in Prison”

Across the globe, the numbers of women in prison continue to rise. The needs of these women are many and varied, especially if they are also mothers.

Women offenders entering prison must either learn to meet their children”s need in the prison environment, or they must learn to cope with the pains of separation when their babies are taken away.

This 1 day, international conference “Mothers and Babies in Prison” is proud to welcome a number of esteemed speakers from both inside and outside the UK. The conference will seek to explore how prison staff, policy makers, heath workers and voluntary groups might work together to ameliorate the many problems of this prisoner group.

Confirmed Speakers include:

- Esther Omolara Ojeah, Nigerian Prisons Service
- Cecilia Kakia, Sierra Leone Prisons Service
- Carol Wiliams, Governor, HMP Styal
- Anita Dockley, Howard League for Penal Reform
- Oliver Robertson, Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO)
