Women with experience of the criminal justice system face unique challenges, which require personalised solutions. We are raising money so that we can provide creative, trauma-informed support which transforms women’s lives, so they can fulfil their potential, free from criminalisation.
Women caught up in the criminal justice system face far reaching challenges which are made worse by the damaging impact of sexism, racism, ablism, and mental ill health. Their needs are often inadequately met by services such as probation, social care and mental health services. They find themselves punished by a system that is supposed to help, which prevents them from making long-term, sustained change.
We will deliver person-centred support that holistically enables women to navigate the complex challenges they face. Our trauma informed services will provide the environment that women need to activate their inner strengths, to heal and to recover. Our approach combines the principles of care and acceptance with creativity in a unique practice that supports women to reach their full potential to live more fulfilled lives while their risk of contact with the criminal justice system is reduced.
