EDUCATION, TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT
We empower serving and former women prisoners to provide meaningful and aspirational careers for the fashion, retail and associated creative industries.
We're a social purpose venture providing personal development workshops and vocational training. Our primary aim is to help all women who take part on our 'Inspiring Women: Inside and Outside' programme to break free from inequality through financial independence in order to become self-sufficient and build successful lives.
A future where socially excluded women have the relevant skills, knowledge and the same opportunities to become empowered and motivated to succeed in life.
Gives each woman a sense of purpose, practical knowledge and self-belief to support themselves and their families.
Gives families stability through the promise of paid work at the end of the programme.
Teaches former prisoners families the value of education and training.
Reduces re-offending rates among participants because they are able to gain paid employment after release.
Deliver significant savings to society through a reduction in re-offending rates.
We partner with women’s prisons and women’s centre’s; welfare providers; resettlement and mentoring charities, together with universities and experts in the fashion, retail and creative industries.
We collaborate with the voluntary sector and other social sector organisations enterprises who offer 'through-the-gate' services which lead to better rehabilitation to prevent further reoffending on release and resettlement into the community.
Our programme helps women to become self-sufficient and reintegrate back into a society which as a consequence, leads to a reduction in reoffending.
