This meeting will focus on influencing policy and creating change for women in the criminal justice system. Speakers from the from the Female Offenders and Health Policy Team at the Ministry of Justice and the HMPPS Women’s Team will present on the recently published Female Offender Strategy Delivery plan, the government’s progress reports on the Farmer Review for Women and the Concordat on Women in or at risk of contact with the Criminal Justice System.
We will get brief policy updates from Clinks and Agenda and there will be an opportunity to take part in discussion groups highlighting good practice in partnership working at local level.
Our quarterly women’s networking forums, hosted in partnership with Agenda, provide support, information and networking opportunities to those working with women in contact with the criminal justice system. They also provide updates on policy, member activity and host speakers on relevant topics. The forums provide an opportunity to gather feedback and key issues raised by organisations working with women in contact with the criminal justice system, enabling Clinks to reflect these to national government at Reducing Reoffending Third Sector Advisory Group (RR3) meetings.
Come along to the women’s network forum to learn more about creating change for women.
Please note that the women’s network forums are only open to voluntary organisations who already provide a specific service or project for women in contact with the criminal justice system. We welcome volunteers, practitioners and service users as well as more experienced leaders/managers.
