Virgin Trains supports MyTime project
In June, Virgin Trains was delighted to support the MyTime Project, a small community-based project based in Merseyside that provides support groups for children who have a parent in prison. Virgin trains provided complimentary travel for a group of children, parents and staff travelling from Merseyside to London, to speak in Westminster to parliamentarians, policy makers and MPs to tell their stories and ask for help.
Some of the children’s calls to action included more child-friendly prison visits and more sensitivity from the police and the media. These children suffer separation anxiety, worry about their parents’ well-being, social isolation, unwanted attention from the media, misplaced self-blame, difficult prison visits, and bullying to name just a few.
