Although there is some literature in relation to grandmothers who care for their children full time, there is little that has been written specifically about grandmothers caring for children when the children’s parents are in prison. It was for this reason that this small pilot project was conducted to start to understand and compare the situation of grandmothers caring for children in a diverse range of countries when their parents are in prison. The aim was to begin to draw out the commonalities and differences and to understand what policymakers need to take into account when considering the needs of children and grandmothers in this situation.
