The Women’s Project

What is The Women’s Project?

NIACRO's Women’s Project Workers work closely with staff from the Probation Board for Northern Ireland (PBNI) to support PBNI’s management of women in the community who have previously offended

The NIACRO staff are placed within the Inspire team in Belfast as well as rural teams, delivering services to women under probation supervision and those in prison who are due to be released soon. 

Another strand of our specialist work with women supports women leaving custody or in the community who have no statutory supervision but need help to link into services in their local community. This tailored service receives funding from the Pilgrim Trust.

What does The Women’s Project offer?

Staff from NIACRO involved in this project work closely with PBNI to deliver individual and group interventions to women who have offended. It takes into account the unique and often complex circumstances of women who offend. This work supports the woman’s Probation supervision and has the overall aim of reducing reoffending and promoting effective resettlement and desistance.
