COPING presents a child-centred research strategy covering four European countries, the UK, Germany, Romania and Sweden, and is being carried out by a consortium of 10 partners from six countries, led by the University of Huddersfield.

COPING aims to identify the characteristics of children with imprisoned parents, their resilience, and their vulnerability to mental health problems. The research reflects a spectrum of different incarceration levels, welfare policies and interventions to support children of prisoners across the four EC countries being studied. COPING also has an international level of stakeholder involvement including government officials, social workers, NGOs, prison staff, caregivers, imprisoned parents and children of prisoners.
