CALA Family Support Project Coordinator Mairianne Nairn has been helping deliver 13 weekly hour-long sessions peep sessions with fathers inside HMP Prison Inverness.
At the request of the Prison Governor, this is now the third time the programme has run.
The following quotes come from the father’s who took part in the programme:
“Peep’s had a massive impact on me and my family – without it, I wouldn’t have had that opportunity to bond with my baby.”
“I’ve really enjoyed the course, it’s made me feel more confident in being a first-time dad and I have discovered lots of activities me and my son can do together.”
“It’s helped me exist, I feel more like a father. Even getting to stand up with my daughter makes a huge difference, in a normal visit session we can’t get off our seats.”
