Keeping Women out of Prison

In February Emeritus Professor Jenny Firth-Cozens organised, on behalf of Northumbria Conflict Resolution Network (NCRN), a meeting to explore developing better pathways for women and keeping women – particularly women with children – out of prison. With the support of the Police and Crime Commissioner, experts in the field came together to hear some short contributions from people working for improvements in this area, followed by time to consider what changes are taking place and how they can be implemented to improve the life chances for the women and their children – and reduce the costs of crime to society. This was a really good conversation and provided some real opportunities to look at how to change outcomes for women at a local level. The full report can be found here.
