And to Turn My Life Around

Women’s Turnaround

Women’s turnaround is a service just for women and offers individual and group work to support adult female offenders and women at risk of offending in Liverpool and Knowsley.

Our team works with lots of different agencies, such as the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, drug and alcohol agencies, local training and employment agencies, mental health services and criminal justice services.

What’s our aim?

We are here to help reduce the number of women in prison who do not pose a risk to the public. We want to reduce offending and re-offending and increase the number of women diverted from prosecution. We also want to increase the number of women accessing and being successful in engaging with community provision. We also aim to reduce the number of family breakdowns and improve your health and well-being. We do all this to help not just you, but to support your wider family, helping them to reach the services they need.

What do we do?

We support women offenders and those at risk of offending, helping you to find the services you need, improve your well-being and make other life changes to make your future a positive one.

Our team are very experienced in working with women who have practical, personal, and emotional difficulties, so whatever your needs we can help. We offer individual support for all sorts of things including legal advice, advocacy, housing, benefit and debt management, employment, education and training, reading groups, health and well-being support drug and alcohol abuse, domestic abuse, reading, IT and counselling. We also run a number of group sessions which focus on thinking positively, freedom programme, parenting, critical thinking and understanding your emotions.

Our activities take place at our base at the Isis Centre Merseyside and in outreach venues throughout Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton and St Helens.
