WIP Campaign to Stop New Prison Places for 500 Women

Women In Prison (WIP), our partners in setting up the Women Prisoners Justice Group (WPJG) have begun a digital campaign to keep up the public pressure on the Government to stop the 500 prison places for women that it is planning to build.

“Building more prison places will only shatter more lives and unnecessarily separate families. We know 95% of children have to leave their home when their mother goes to prison, as women are often primary carers.

“Under current plans, children will visit overnight in prison, rather than mothers being released to spend the night with their children. We cannot let this happen.
