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.
