Gaps in services for women in the criminal justice system

The gaps in services for women in the criminal justice system are being explored as part of a new programme by an east London charity.

This follows a report released by the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee last month, which said that big changes to how women are treated in the justice system had not been made since its last investigaton more than 10 years ago.

Joyce Kallevik is director of the charity Wish, which wants to improve outcomes for women in hospitals, prisons and community organisations.
