Its activities are designed to lead to increased mutual understanding and provide insights into the problems with which all are confronted. In opening unofficial channels of communication, it improves co-operation between the different parts of the criminal justice system.

The ACJRD are seeking a PhD Student as a Researcher for the “Tracking the needs and services provision for women ex-prisoners” project.

The aim of the project is to identify the multiplicity of needs of women ex-prisoners on leaving prison.  The study will consider the services currently provided to meet those needs and identify the gaps in services available.
