    Abstract

    Independent research commissioned by Action for Children on the mother and baby unit in HM Prison Service Styal. The research provides new evidence on services for women in custody and their children and provides useful practice findings on improving outcomes within this group and recommendations for those commissioning similar services. Results indicate that the child-centred focus works well and that there is a possible link between the services offered by mother and baby units and a reduction in reoffending. Action for Children plan to further research the post-release experience.
