Summary of activities
WJN's vision is for all women and female youth affected by the criminal justice system to live free from violence and discrimination, benefit from adequate living standards, are treated with dignity and respect and are empowered to make significant life changes and positive choices. We do this through providing one-on-one mentoring, and culturally appropriate creative arts groups which enables each woman and female youth to take a new life journey in a supported safe way. WJN addresses the many issues facing women and female youth at risk of, or whom have entered the justice system, both systemically through advocacy and individually through intensive case management and group programs. WJN operates from the knowledge and experience that by providing women and female youth with gender-responsive social support, recidivism rates are reduced, the burgeoning prison population can be minimised and importantly, the safety of the public and community is enhanced.
