This is part of a developing community interest project for offenders.

The clients also have to undertake sessions covering aspects such as Employment, Training and Education (Information Advice and Guidance) with an emphasis on self-employment and enterprise where appropriate,  Physical Health & Nutrition, Emotional Well Being, Finance & Debt, and Relationships (including Parenting). This takes into account the social, economic and family context of women’s lives particularly parenting and care responsibilities and addresses the underlying causes of offending behaviour.                                                  dresser after
