The evidence indicates that for most women who get caught up in the criminal justice system, it's connected to trauma, poverty, social exclusion and coercion, rather than rational decision-making. Most women with convictions have had to make very difficult life choices with poor options available to them. But that said, we ask that each woman we support has the ability to reflect on her convictions and know that she would act differently in the future. By taking this responsibility, she is best placed to disclose her conviction to an employer: ready to focus on her future and not her past.

We haven't uploaded our referral forms to the website directly, as we'd prefer you to get in touch first. That way, we can guide you through the process and make sure that everything is smooth and efficient.

We welcome referrals for anyone who identifies as a woman or non-binary. No questions asked.

I didn’t know what to expect, but today has shown me that I’m not on my own.
