Storybook Dads ( and Storybook Mums) opeartes in over 100 prisons nationwide. Most of the prisons send their recordings to our headquaters in Dartmoor Prison where our team of staff, volunteers and seected prisoners take out mistakes and add music and sound effects to make a wonderfully creative personalised CD/ DVD for the children.
Our prisoner editrs can gain a nationally recognised certificate in sound or video production.
We also run workshops where imprsioned parents can make books, journals, craft DVDs, quizzes and games for thir children.
Every year in the UK, over 160,000 children suffer the trauma of parental imprisonment. We help to maintain the vital emotional bond between parent and child by enabling parents to record bedtime stories onto CD and DVD. Prisoners who maintain contact with their families are up to 6 times less likely to re-offend.
