The Footprints Project invites you to an evening with

 Kate Adie, CBE DL

and

Paula Harriott, Head of Prisoner Involvement at the Prison Reform Trust 

Discussing:

Women’s prisons: The damage done to families and children

Our next event will take place in Alton on 7th September 2022, commencing with a drinks reception at 6pm and the discussion at 7pm.

Paula is a lived experience header, and will be joined by her daughter to discuss the effect of her imprisonment on their relationship.

We hope the evening will be interactive with time for questions from the audience.

Did you know?

In the UK women only make up 5% of those convicted every year but are subject to longer sentences in prisons further away from home.

  • 81% of women are unemployed before entering prison (compared to 7.7% of the general population)
  • 53% experienced abuse as a child (compared to 20% of the general population)
  • 46% have attempted suicide in the past (compared to 4% of the general population)

How we help

The Footprints Project train volunteers in the community to provide person centred support for women who have been in prison, have received a community sentence or a caution from the Police, enabling them to lead purposeful, fulfilling lives, contributing positively to the local community.

  • 90% of the women we support on our Out of Court Diversionary Scheme in partnership with Dorset Police do not reoffend
  • Over 65% of people supported see their criminogenic needs decrease
  • Over 35% of people on our Employment scheme in 2019-20 returned to work, despite 80% being unemployed before prison and 47% having no previous qualifications
