Details

Together Women (TW) was a community-based intervention aimed at women offenders and those or ‘at risk’ of offending. This research explored impact of TW by comparing proven re-offending among women with a recent criminal conviction who were referred to TW with a matched comparison group.

Interviews with magistrates and crown court judges in TW areas explored how much they valued TW and how far they used it to divert women at risk of custody.
