PACT awarded Ministry of Justice grant for new programme supporting female offenders

PACT is delighted to have been awarded a grant by the Ministry of Justice to provide support for female offenders with experience of domestic abuse. The new programme will be delivered in partnership with Elizabeth Fry, Thames Valley Police and Reading Borough Council and will be located across Elizabeth Fry Approved Premises and Alana House (the women's centre run by PACT).

The programme will include providing specialist individual support and tailored recovery programmes by a dedicated domestic abuse worker, as well as support when transitioning between services and into the community. The programme will also include support for wider needs such as skills development opportunities, and mental health support, and will launch in January 2019, running until March 2020.
