Keeping Women Out of the Justice System: Final Report

Learn more about the impact of our themed grant round.

In 2017, we identified Keeping Women Out of the Justice System (KWOJS) as a priority funding theme. This emerged in response to a 75% increase in Victoria’s women’s prison population since 2006.

Over a period of five years, we allocated almost $5 million to seven innovative projects. Through our funding, we enabled the projects to test models for reform and work toward reducing:

  • women’s encounters with the justice system
  • the factors driving growth in the women’s prison population
  • women’s incarceration and recidivism rates.

This third and final report details the individual activities and outcomes of the funded projects, as well as their collective impact. You can also read the first and second reports.
