The study presents the analysis of the results of a research survey conducted with respect to determining the views of the staff of institutions which provide penitentiary and post-penitentiary care in the Czech Republic. The interviewees provided an assessment of the potential for the provision of assistance and support to prisoners and persons recently released from prison relating particularly to the family situation of such persons.
The following groups of persons were interviewed: selected prison staff, social services managers and other personnel employed by so-called municipalities with extended powers responsible for dealing with persons released from prison, staff from the Probation and Mediation Service of the Czech Republic and representatives of non-profit organisations that provide penitentiary and post-penitentiary care.
The research focused on three main aspects related to the family situations of prisoners and persons released from prison. The first aspect involved both the determination of the significance of the topic of the family situation of prisoners and released persons in terms of the work of the representatives of the institutions approached and a detailed description of the most important family situations addressed by the interviewees. The next part of the study focused on the capacity of the interviewees and the institutions for which they worked to provide assistance to prisoners and persons released from prison with regard to the family situations of such persons. This part also included an investigation of the range of specific situations in which the interviewees were able to provide assistance with concern to the family situations of their clients. The final part of the study addressed the level of cooperation, and provided an assessment of the efficacy of existing cooperation, between the various institutions that provide penitentiary and post-penitentiary care. In accordance with the first two parts of the study, the final part concentrated on the responses of interviewees to those questions that specifically concerned the issue of the provision of assistance and support related to the family situations of their clients.
