Do you have a commitment to making a difference to women’s lives? Are you passionate about supporting women in a holistic, women centred, trauma-informed way to divert women away from the Criminal Justice System and to achieve long-term lasting change?
A new ‘Creating Community Connections’ project is led by a partnership of women’s centre providers - Women in Prison, Nelson Trust, Brighton Women's Centre, Anawim and Together Women.

You will work as part of a national team of 10 Women’s Centre Link Workers based within Women’s Prisons across the country, and also build a network of Women’s Centre Champions made up of women serving sentences in HMP Eastwood Park.
