Who Cares? Where next for women offender services?

‘Who Cares? Where next for women offender services?’ is a Clinks report providing a snapshot into the experience of community based women offender services over the last 18 months.

Following on from the earlier Run Ragged report, we interviewed frontline organisations and statutory partners to find out about their experience of sustaining gender specific provision in the current policy and economic climate; we also report on the changing needs of the service users. This rich information helped us develop a vision of good partnership working and the challenges facing these valuable services.

The report concludes with recommendations for meeting the needs of women offenders in the future.
