Detail

Women offenders have distinct needs. This Better Outcomes document summarises the needs of women offenders, how we should respond to them and how to better commission, target and sequence services and interventions to improve outcomes and value for money for women offenders. It also supports a more effective approach to improving offenders engagement with rehabilitative activity.

The evidence identifies that we should support women to: improve self management; access mental health treatment; address substance misuse; be in control of daily life and have goals; develop a stable pro-social identity; resettle and build social capital; develop a prosocial identity and improve family contact.
