DownloadsReport on the Inquiry into Preventing Unnecessary Criminalisation of Women References
This report presents the findings of the Inquiry into Preventing Unnecessary Criminalisation of Women run by the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Women in the Penal System, chaired by Baroness Corston.
There was a consensus among those who gave evidence to the APPG that too many women were pulled into the criminal justice system unnecessarily.
The inquiry looked at what criminal justice and non-criminal justice related agencies were doing to reduce unnecessary criminalisation and any barriers to their work. 2015.
