This service is a recovery-focused Approved Premise for female offenders.

Following extensive refurbishment, the building has been designed to be an environment that is not only warm and welcoming, but is a physically and psychologically safe space for residents to begin their rehabilitative journey. Staff focus on the development of physical and mental wellbeing in order to build a strong foundation for re-integrating in society.

The work done at Hestia’s Female AP is also reflective of the need to recognise female offenders as having different journeys towards and through the Criminal Justice System to their male counterparts. The work that is carried out by this service additionally recognises the growing recognition of the impact of trauma on those who commit crimes, which is particularly true of women who offend. This informs all work done at the service.
