Rachel Walsh's Recent Activity
"Women in Salford who have offended or who are at risk of doing so can access the award-winning TOGETHER WOMEN PROJECT (TWP) and the broad range of services it offers including drug and alcohol support, counselling, parenting skills, employment and training and gender-specific support services.
Operating from a women only centre - with crèche - and offering a safe and relaxing environment, the project has a number of specific aims - to reduce re-offending; avoid family breakdown; increase access for women to community-based services and to divert women from custody.
The project delivers services that provide solutions to 9 criminal justice pathways supporting women to break free from offending and the triggers identified as the root cause of offending. The TWP team works closely with a range of criminal justice agencies and has two seconded probation officers on-site.
It also delivers a women’s specified activity requirement (WSAR) a mandatory option available to sentencers as an alternative to custody."
