Women’s Breakout

Women’s Breakout is a national umbrella organisation which represents projects working with women who have offended and those at risk of offending.  It aims to understand the needs and aspirations of the member organisations and develop tools and deliver support to reflect their priorities; and also to act as a strong voice and advocate on their behalf to influence policy making around women in the criminal justice system and how they are affected.

In June 2016, the Foundation awarded a two-year grant totalling £15,000 towards the salary of the Communications and Administration worker. Over the period of the grant, Women’s Breakout intends to continue to provide regular targetted communications with its membership, and fully represent groups and issues relating to women, within the sector.
