When a member of the family is in prison
The Organisation for Families and Friends of Prisoners (FFP) works for the relatives and friends of prisoners in Norway. We know that imprisonment can be a difficult situation for the entire family. In FFP we know what the conditions are like in prison, and know about the rights of families. We can give advice regarding economy, social issues and community, applications and complaints, and about the situation of children and family. FFP organises many social and cultural events for children and young people, as well as for adults who have a family member in prison. We have consultants who can answer questions and offer advice, and there is the chance to meet with others in the same situation. Interpreters are available for many languages. There is no charge for FFP’s services.
If you are a next-of-kin with limited Norwegian skills and find it difficult to communicate in Norwegian, we can provide guidance meetings with an interpreter.
