Tomorrow’s Women Wirral
Tomorrow’s Women Wirral (TWW) was launched in September 2011 and SI Heswall has been involved with the project since then. Due to the success of the project TWW moved into independent accommodation in April 2012 and became a charity in September 2012.
Tomorrow’s Women Wirral (TWW) is a project designed to benefit all women aged 18+ in the community and is committed to reducing female imprisonment, offending, and to provide assistance to those women who want to make positive lifestyle changes.
The women who attend TWW are not judged and integrate with women who want to share their own skills and experiences. TWW is open Monday – Friday (9.00am to 3:30pm with late night opening on a Tuesday evening until 6:30pm) and has a full timetable of courses that address women’s needs.
Merseyside Community Rehabilitation Company is based within TWW offering all women the opportunity to access support from over 175 Wirral Agencies. TWW offers space in a safe women-only environment so partner agencies can work with women, some of whom may not have accessed services previously. Partners include Wirral Met College, CWP NHS, Alcohol and Drug Services, Counselling Services, Solicitors, Police etc.
Tomorrow’s Women Wirral releases a monthly timetable with targeted interventions and specific activities to support and prevent women from getting into difficulties in their lives. TWW is able to provide a series of targeted interventions that are tailored to the individual woman through a multi-agency, problem-solving approach.
Tomorrow’s Women Wirral works to the principles outlined within The Corston Report produced in 2007.
In its newest project TWW is filling a gap in provision for young women aged 14 – 17. From within this project – Tomorrow’s Young Women – young women can access provisions, interventions and activities too.
