The aim of this project is to strengthen partnerships between a national network of women’s centres, prisons and women in custody to support women through custody to community.

We do this by having multiple prison link workers, working across multiple prisons with partnerships with vital specialist community support services across the country, especially women’s centres.

By connecting prisons & women in custody to a network of local women’s services, we aim to:

o     Aid resettlement & support engagement with holistic support services that meet women’s needs

o    Address root causes of offending

o    Improve outcomes on release, &

o    Intercept cycles of trauma, disadvantage, & abuse

The Project will ultimately support women who have been subject to domestic violence & abuse & work with them so that their experiences do not negatively influence their opportunity of successful resettlement back into the community.
