View or download a copy of Piecing it Together: Supporting Children and Families with a Family Member in Prison in Ireland, which makes a series of recommendations to support the rights and needs of these children and families.

Piecing it Together re-examines key issues for children and families with a family member in prison since the launch of IPRT's "Picking up the Pieces" report in 2012. Click here for more, or to register to attend.

Serious deficiencies in the prison complaints system and quarantine conditions that amount to solitary confinement are among the critical issues raised by the prisons inspectorate in its 2020 Annual Report. Read IPRT's repsonse.

One year on from the introduction of the first COVID-19 restrictions in Irish prisons, IPRT outlines the steps that need to be taken now and into the future. Read the briefing here.

The 'Know Your Rights - Your Rights as a Prisoner' guide aims to help prisoners understand the rights they have while in prison. It is written in everyday language and is informative and easy to use. You can read it here.

The COVID-19 crisis is an unprecedented national public health situation for all society, including the prison community. Resources, international perspectives, and updates from IPRT are gathered here.
