Criminal Justice System

Women’s First is a rolling programme for women in the Criminal Justice System.  It delivers group sessions based around life skills and additional one to one support.  It provides a safe and confidential space in which women can explore issues relating to previous offending and consider how they might make different choices in the future.

The PETALs programme is an 8-week one-to-one support package for to help you get back on your feet and start to live the life you deserve. You’ll work with your Key Worker each week to take care of the basics – housing, safety, food, warmth, clothing, money, sleep and health. The appointments are regular and provide structure whilst promoting positive choices . Along with the one-to-one work , we facilitate access to the clothing and toiletry bank, we accompany to drop-in sessions ,including lunch , and refer on to personal development groups within the centre. PETAL’s encourages clients to regain control over their lives and move forward with a more positive outlook and from a place of greater stability. It is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Length: 8-weeks, 1 – 3 sessions per week.

Community Payback
We offer community payback placements for women who have hours to complete. You’ll get involved in the day-to-day running of the Centre and will be integrated into our volunteer team (no one will know why you’re here!) You’ll be cleaning, tidying, shopping, completing admin tasks and much more.
