We are delighted to announce our Out of Court Diversionary Scheme for vulnerable women in partnership with Dorset Police has been shortlisted for the Howard League for Penal Reform Community Award Women's Category.

The pilot project ran from April 2019-20 and saw over 80 women supported. 90% successfully completed the scheme and no women have been reconvicted since the start of the scheme.

The scheme is a true partnership between Footprints and Dorset Police and has since been expanded to enable us to take on another member of staff.

The result will be announced on 20th October.
