    Abstract

    The Women’s Centre Programme has been developed to demonstrate how a gender specific, community-led, multi-agency approach can support women to achieve positive outcomes at a community, individual and agency level. The two projects involved will establish a physical centre as a base for activity and to adopt a whole community approach which draws on the existing assets and strengths within the community to support all women, but especially those who are at risk of negative outcomes as a result of the specific social or structural issues they face, such as women at risk of entering, or already in, the criminal justice system.
