Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Working with some of the communities most marginalised and disadvantaged groups, WIPAN have empowered many women and female youth affected by the criminal justice system to make real and significant life change, resulting in higher education and job and skills training, that would not otherwise have occurred. Further almost 79.8% of WIPAN's clients have not reoffended or returned to prison and as such our charity has been significant in preventing further crime and reducing the recidivism rates of women and female youth.
