  • Closing 14th September 2018

218 Service

“My journey began in the crisis centre, then the past 5 ½ months have been in the 218 project for women. I have received group therapy to build me back up and I return to my community in 3 weeks. I don’t know what lies ahead and can only continue to hope and pray. The main lesson I have is that I had to learn to live with and love the one person I can’t get away from – ME.”

The 218 Service provides an alternative to custody for women in the criminal justice system. We provide programmes of intensive support and group work to empower the women to address the root causes of their offending. With a view to support them to break the cycle of offending which results in the ‘revolving door’ syndrome of maintaining their involvement in the criminal justice system and prison service

The service offers a 12 bed Residential Unit and a Community Engagement service for women who still reside in the community. As many of the women who access our service have a wide range of mental and physical issues we have an integrated health team and psychologies therapy team to address these.
