The Corston Report is a review of vulnerable women in the criminal justice system carried out in 2006 by Baroness Jean Corston. It outlines the need for a distinct and integrated approach to improve services for women in the criminal justice system and women at risk of offending.

It concludes that an extension of the network of women’s community centres is required to direct women out of pathways that lead to crime.
