Ormiston Families works with Nacro and a range of other partner agencies to deliver the government’s Probation Family Services programme across the East of England.

Ormiston Families’ Probation Family service works with men who are supervised by The Probation Service (TPS) under a Community Order or Licence.

Ormiston Families’ Probation Family service provides a range of family support sessions on behalf of the Probation Service across Suffolk and Hertfordshire.

These support sessions help to:

  • Establish or maintain supportive community networks
  • Reduce the impact of offending on children
  • Break intergenerational cycles of offending, including domestic abuse

How do we work with families affected by offending in our sessions?

This service supports ex-offenders and their families to reconnect with their community. Support options include: benefits advice; contact with children; school attendance; parenting advice and relationship advice.
