Boost: Building On Our Strength Together

St Giles Cymru runs a Hub in Newport, supporting women through peer mentoring, trauma-informed care and training to strengthen employment opportunities and reduce homelessness.

The Hub is part of a multi-agency effort to “Help End Homelessness” across Gwent, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Expect Respect

Expect Respect supports females under 18 who are based in Coventry and Wolverhampton and are on the periphery or entrenched within Child Criminal Exploitation, gangs, county lines and Child Sexual Exploitation. This project is funded by The Violence Reduction Partnership and Wolverhampton City Council.


“Thank you for supporting so many young girls and helping them through tough times.

Thank you for being there for me and letting me talk to you.”


Footsteps East of England, funded by The Ministry of Justice provides holistic support to females in Cambridgeshire, Northants, Norfolk and Suffolk who are involved in the criminal justice system in custody and the community.

Liberty Links

Liberty Links is a mobile unit offering support in North Yorkshire. Funded by the Office of the North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

Whole System Approach

Bringing together over 30 strategic-level partners in North Yorkshire to discuss and work on processes for a more collaborative approach to supporting women and girls, regardless of their circumstances (past and present) characteristics, life choices or postcode.

The aim is to offer all women a safe space to drop in to and access gender-specific support from a multi-agency network of professionals.


Wonder Plus supports women across Norfolk who are at risk of offending/re-offending and are facing multiple and often complex barriers.

The service also often offers a voice for women who do not feel heard or understood. The project is funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk.
