Women’s community project funding boost

WORK to address women’s offending in the Scarborough area can continue thanks to a one-off funding deal.

The deal between the National Offender Management Service and the Corston Independent Funders’ Coalition is part of a £3.2 million package announced by the Ministry of Justice and means Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale’s Community Project can continue to work with various agencies and continue to provide additional services to +support women offenders to make the necessary changes in their lives.

Nikki Orrell, chief executive of the Cambridge Centre, said: “If we can continue to work with vulnerable women to reduce the risk of them offending and break the cycle of re-offending, then it benefits them, their children and future generations.”
