Women

Female Langley resident in a white crop t-shirt with her arms folded across her chestWe understand the unique challenges that women face who come in contact with the Criminal Justice system.

Sadly, 1 in 3 women in prison have suffered sexual abuse and over half have been the victims of domestic violence.*

Our approach, therefore, is person focused, supportive and empowering. We operate two female projects – one in and Kent and a housing-specific project in Luton. We work with female offenders as well as those classified as vulnerable, for example, victims of domestic violence.

We help women to:

  • Address substance abuse and addictions
  • Access support for mental health issues
  • Manage a home, budget and maintain a tenancy
  • Become reunited with their family and children (where possible)
  • Improve their health and wellbeing
  • Access training, education and employment
