Bedford Row receives Core Funding from the Irish Prison Service

Welcome to the Bedford Row Family Project, Limerick


Bedford Row Family Project supports families of prisoners. Crime and imprisonment affects all of us and causes a lot of pain and distress in society.  In our work with families, children are our most important priority….

Why? Because we believe in a world beyond imprisonment.

A world where a child growing up in a family affected by imprisonment can be prevented from going down the same road.

A world where a child can be loved, nurtured and protected.

A world where fear, anxiety and uncertainty  in families can be replaced by trust and hope.

Read our website, look at our DVD, and find out more about our unique model. We need your help in our work to fashion better outcomes for children in distress, have healthier communities and a safer society in general.

(Más mian leat do ghnó a dhéanamh tré Gaeilge déanamid gach iarracht é sin a eagrú)
