Rose Mahon's Recent Activity
"The ISIS Women’s Centre, based in Gloucester, offers support, guidance and practical help to women offenders and those who are at risk of offending. By addressing issues which may have contributed to offending behaviour, we aim to divert women away from custody and towards a more stable future.
The centre was established by the Nelson Trust and was set up with funding from the Ministry of Justice. 'It has been suggested that women with un-met support needs may be at risk of offending. The consequences of which can be devastating' (Corston Report 2007).
Through our partnerships with other organizations, we can offer a wide range of help, support and information on:
• Family support services, with an in-house crèche
• Housing benefit and debt
• Domestic violence
• Life skills
• In-house courses, leading to qualifications
• Emotional wellbeing and self-esteem building
• Substance misuse
