Support for Families

If you have a loved one in prison overseas we are here to help. Please contact us on 01-5053156 for advice, information or just to talk. Any information you provide will be kept completely confidential.

We know that the imprisonment of a loved one can be a devastating experience, particularly when a person is detained overseas. An essential part of our work is providing information, support and advice to the families of prisoners overseas.

Restrictions on communication, language and cultural differences and an unfamiliar legal system are serious problems that families encounter. The ICPO assists families with these issues and provides links to other useful contacts.
