Women in Salford who have offended can access the award-winning Together Women Project (TWP) and the broad range of services it offers including drug and alcohol support, counselling, parenting skills, employment and training and gender-specific support services.
Operating from a women only centre and offering a safe and relaxing environment, the project has a number of specific aims – to reduce re-offending; avoid family breakdown; increase access for women to community-based services and to divert women from custody.
The project delivers services that provide solutions to 9 criminal justice pathways supporting women to break free from offending and the triggers identified as the root cause of offending. The TWP team works closely with a range of criminal justice agencies and has two seconded probation officers on-site.
What people are saying
"I enjoyed my experience on NCS because I was challenged by myself and others around me. I had a lot of inspiration to carry on and do better. I mixed with people from different backgrounds."
"Without Salford Foundation's support I'd be homeless. You've changed my life and I would never be able to continue my studies without your help."
"Coming here has changed my life around for the better. It has helped me stop offending by looking at why I did it in the first place and helping get things sorted out."
"I am now much more confident in my schoolwork and I listen more and my organisational skills are getting better each day."
"You would not believe the difference coming to Salford Foundation has made. I was sitting in my house, not speaking to anyone for days. My life has changed for the better. I have a life again."
"I can now start living my life again and not be afraid to open my front door. Thank you so much."
"Thank you so much for going above and beyond for my child. Your help and support has helped make such a difference in her life in such a small amount of time. I am truly grateful."
