Professionals Working with Children and Families of Offenders

i-HOP – Supporting all professionals to work with the children and families of offenders

i-HOP is a one-stop online information service which supports all professionals to work with children and families of offenders, bringing together useful information in one place. i-HOP is funded by the Department of Education and is delivered by Barnardo’s.

The i-HOP web directory is a constantly growing directory of information, bringing together all the up-to-date resources to support professionals: research, service details, practice examples, policy frameworks, resources to use with families, events and training programmes.

In partnership with Research in Practice, i-HOP have developed a free practical set of Quality Statements and a Toolkit for professionals in criminal justice, specialist, targeted and universal services. Any service can use it to assess and develop its work with the children and families of offenders. Download the i-HOP Quality Statements and Toolkit for free.


Barnardos has been highlighting the hidden impact of imprisonment on children and running a range of support services over the last 20 years across the UK.
