Mental Health Alternatives & Early Interventions

We are a new project within Anawim. We aim to support women who may have offended at a low level and those vulnerable to crime by providing early intervention. We are linked in with the liaison and diversion pilot in custody, who are identifying alternatives to custody and will assist in getting women the treatment they require to be able to move forward productively. We achieve this by assessing individuals and diverting them into support services that cater to their individual needs such as mental health intervention, debt and benefit support, long term key working at our centre and identifying other community support.

We are also supporting West Midlands Police with the Community Resolutions and Conditional Cautioning. Which women committing low level crime, would be given an alternative to receiving a fine, caution or court appearance. Our team consists of two caseworkers and a coordinator.
