Please join our President, Executive and special guest, Elizabeth Evatt AC, to celebrate International Womens’ Day and raise some funds and awareness for the Miranda Project.

 

The Miranda Project (soon to be co-located with Penrith Women’s Health Centre) is an innovative, gender specific approach to assisting vulnerable women attending court, on community orders or exiting prison. Miranda aims to halt the increase in the women’s prison population through the provision of genuine support and the development of alternative pathways within the community.

Run by women, for women, the Miranda Project was funded in 2017 by Women NSW, and is a Program of the Community Restorative Centre (CRC). Working on both sides of prison walls, Miranda has two specialist workers and provides holistic support including; casework, group activities, access to victims counselling and connections with other key services. The heart of this project is helping women live lives free from the criminal justice system, and free from domestic and family violence.

Together with Patron, The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, key staff and volunteers, Elizabeth Evatt is an avid supporter of the Project, and is seeking lawyers who practice in crime or family law to be involved in it’s work for those that may be interested.

Founded in 1951, the Community Restorative Centre (CRC) is the leading community provider of support services to people affected by the criminal justice system in NSW. All CRC programs aim to reduce crime and break entrenched cycles of disadvantage, offending and imprisonment. CRC is public company limited by guarantee and is a registered charity.
