Introduction to Service
In Cleveland, Changing Lives works in partnership with A Way Out to support women within the Criminal Justice System (CJS).
Community coaches provide holistic support and deliver therapeutic interventions across all the pathways and custody-based coaches specialise in providing accommodation support and solutions.
The support we offer is tailored to support vulnerable women whilst on licence within custody or within the community. Eligible women are 18+ and have two years or less left to serve on their license.
We work closely with multiple organisations to deliver a range of support that may be required to help create a life away from criminal activity and pursue future goals. Women can also take courses to support their personal development.
- Support relating to housing, finance, drug and alcohol misuse and mental health
- One-to-one or group self-development courses
- Support in gaining access to education or employment
How to access
