We are a national charity supporting women affected by the criminal justice system and we campaign to radically reduce the women's prison population. We do it by supporting women in prison, through the gate and in the community. The criminal justice system replicates and reinforces the powerlessness, punishment and blame many women experience throughout their lives.  By providing a women-specific response we can begin to challenge this individually and systematically.


We provide holistic, women-centred support to women affected by the criminal justice system in order to enable them to meet their resettlement, education and training needs and reduce the risk of re-offending.  We also educate the public and policy makers to promote alternatives to women's custody and provide a voice for women's experiences.
