At Women in Prison, we are passionate, ambitious and grounded in the reality of women’s lives. We are proud of our roots and have grown from strength to strength since the 1980’s, delivering services to women and campaigning for change.

Women are a minority in the criminal justice system, which means their needs can often be overlooked. But we know that women in prison are five times more likely to have mental ill health than those in the general population, 95% of children must leave home when their mother goes to prison and two in three women in prison are survivors of domestic abuse. Prison harms women and their families, and we want to change that.

Our services model alternatives to prison, supporting women in their communities to address the underlying issues that sweep them into contact with the criminal justice system in the first place. And through our campaigning, we focus on working to radically reduce the number of women who end up in prison.

Women in Prison’s Project Workers deliver high-quality, trauma-informed, independent advocacy for women in communities and in prisons, which focuses on early intervention, and holistic provision as part of a ‘whole system’ multi-agency response that looks to address the root causes of women’s offending.

The primary purpose of this role is to provide in-depth, ongoing support to a caseload of women in the community of Greater Manchester.

We actively encourage applications from women from a variety of backgrounds, and with a range of skills and experiences. We are particularly interested to hear from Black, Asian and minoritised women and women who have personal experience of the criminal justice system.

The role is only open to women, in accordance with the sex-based exemptions of the Equality Act 2010 pursuant to Schedule 9, Part 1.
