star this property answer text <p>The publication of the female offender strategy on 27 June is the start of a new and significant programme of work to deliver better outcomes for female offenders at all points of the justice system. It sets out our vision to see fewer women in custody, especially on short-term sentences, and a greater proportion of women managed in the community successfully.</p><p> </p><p>Our vision for the ‘residential women’s centres’ pilot is the provision of an intensive residential support package in the community for women at risk of, or having served, short custodial sentences. The intention is to divert them from custody where appropriate and support them to address the underlying causes of their offending behaviour.</p><p> </p><p>We are not aware of any past or existing provision that fully accords with this, therefore we are unable to provide any information about how many places in women’s residential centres were funded by the Government in each year since 2010. However, there are several similar small-scale models such as Willowdene Farm, Anawim and Threshold Housing First, whose experiences and knowledge will be used to inform the work undertaken in the residential women’s centres pilot.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Our Female Offender Strategy is committed to improving outcomes for women at all stages of the justice system, and this includes supporting those who have children. We know that female prisoners are more likely than male prisoners to be a primary carer and imprisoned mothers are more likely to be living with their children prior to custody – around 60% of women compared with about 45% of men in prison who have children. Figures from a 2015 data matching exercise with the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Work and Pensions showed that between 24% and 31% of all female offenders were estimated to have one or more child dependents.</p><p><br>We know that when coming into contact with the criminal justice system, some women choose not to disclose that they have dependent children for a number of reasons. As such, iIt is difficult to create an accurate estimate of the number of women who choose not to disclose and to provide appropriate targeted support. However, we want all women to feel safe enough to disclose and are taking steps to encourage this, as outlined below. This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that the National Probation Service’s pre-sentence reports, which assist the court in making sentencing decisions, highlight the fact an offender has dependent children and supporting the roll out of the ‘Safeguarding Children When Sentencing Mothers’ training material developed by Dr Shona Minson.</p>

The women’s centres map was published in guidance for the police on working with vulnerable women, alongside the female offender strategy in June 2018; the rape support centres map has been shared with various stakeholders, but has not been published and there are no plans at present to publish it.</p><p>Our female offender’s strategy sets out a programme of work to improve outcomes for female offenders, based on our vision of seeing fewer women entering the justice system and serving short custodial sentences, and better conditions for those women in custody.

star this property answer text <p>The UK Living Wage (sometimes referred to as the ‘Real Living Wage’) and the London Living Wage, are both voluntary rates set by the Living Wage Foundation. These are not statutory figures which relate to the government policy in this area, and so are not legally binding on employers. The statutory minimum rates are the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage. For comparison, the National Living Wage is currently £7.83 per hour, and increased by 4.4% in April 2018. The increases in the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage have produced increases for over 2 million workers this year, across the economy, and increased pay by £2,000 for those on the minimum rate, since these statutory arrangements were introduced. All MoJ employees are paid at least the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage.</p><p> </p><p>1643 staff employed by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ HQ, HMCTS, LAA, OPG and CICA) and 561 by HMPPS who work outside Greater London are paid at a rate below the Real National Living Wage of £9 per hour.</p><p> </p><p>517 staff employed by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ HQ, HMCTS, LAA, OPG and CICA) and 27 by HMPPS who work inside Greater London are paid a rate below the London Living wage of £10.55 per hour.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Protection from Harassment Act 1997 allows the court, upon conviction or acquittal, to make a restraining order for the purpose of protecting the victim from conduct that amounts to harassment or that will cause fear of violence.</p><p>The primary consideration of the court is that restraining orders remain necessary for the purpose of protecting the victim. When an application to vary a restraining order is made, the judiciary must consider the impact on the victim. Any application to vary must be shared with the victim to allow them to give their views before an order can be varied. All decisions on a variation are always communicated to the CPS, the police and the victim so that consideration can be made as to any additional protection that may be required. Departmental procedures require the police to receive notice within 30 minutes of an order being varied, so that they can take immediate steps if that is necessary.</p> more like this
