- The number of women we helped has risen from 13% to 19% over the last three years.
The number of women using our services is growing annually and we have many years of experience in providing services aimed addressing the specific issues that the women we help face.
This trauma informed work offers services for women both in prison and the community. Many of the clients we help are extremely vulnerable and have unaddressed issues around homelessness, mental health, hidden disabilities such as autism, substance misuse, domestic abuse and poverty.
Our caseworkers become a ‘one-stop shop’, helping women access a range of specialist services tailored to their individual needs. By being a single point of contact, they can build trusted relationships with the women, advocate on their behalf and help them build bridges with services and other sources of positive support.
Although vulnerable, the women we work with have often experienced overwhelming trauma and yet have got through it against the odds. Our aim is to help them realise their strengths, providing them with practical support, motivation and enabling them to support themselves and others. Many progress through our Peer Advisor Programme and go on to help other women.
