Improving the Wellbeing of Women and Girls
Our interest in improving well-being for women, and particularly women who are at risk of negative outcomes as a result of specific social or structural issues which they face, was borne out of our involvement in the criminal justice sector. In particular, our interest was prompted by the 2012 Commission on Women Offenders .
Through this theme we aim to:
- Divert women and girls going through tough times away from negative outcomes and help break inter-generational cycles of negative outcomes within families and communities
- Support women, girls and their families to be safer, happier, healthier and more achieving
