Visits to projects in the North

The Director of Women’s Breakout, Jackie Russell, is taking some time out this month to visit member organisations projects in in the north of the country. As the Director, she feels that it is valuable to see the work of the projects first hand and to be able to draw on this when presenting the importance of women’s community solutions and alternatives to custody to various audiences.

Jackie tweeted (@jackierussell56)

“Just leaving Hull TWP – fantastci project, such dedication and understanding staff, and very empowering approaches”

” Tees Valley Women’s Centre doing some fabulous work with women offenders”

“Escape Blythe, the lead for SWAN – work with women offenders in Northumberland. Excellent project providing vital support across a huge area”

“SWAN return on investment is 1:6.65 ie: for every £1 invested £6.65 of social and economic value is created – this has to be thre right way!”
