What’s the Impact of community-based support for women who offend?

Together Women are working in partnership with TouchstoneTouchstone and the Together Women Project are pleased to announce that they have come together in partnership to deliver a new project for women with mental health problems.  The Impact Project will reduce the use of custody for women who offend by providing courts with a credible package of measures enabling the use of community sentences for women with identified mental health needs.   Over the next two years, we will support at least 50 women in Leeds to improve their mental health and wellbeing, and address wider support needs.  We hope that our targeted interventions will reduce re-offending rates.  TWP and Touchstone would like to thank the Pilgrim Trust for funding the project, which is sure to provide a replicable project of national significance.
