Criminal Justice Worker
The Women’s Support and Diversionary Scheme is an exciting new service delivered by Humankind across North Yorkshire and York. The service is funded by the North Yorkshire Police Fire & Crime Commissioner, on the basis that female service users who are at risk of or are within the criminal justice system require a bespoke service to respond appropriately to their needs. The service will be delivering evidence-based, structured interventions to adult females, who are at risk of offending or have committed an offence. The post holders will work closely with North Yorkshire Police, Liaison and Diversion Services, Substance Misuse Services, Probation, and other partner agencies.
Our service aims are to:
- Increase the quality and effectiveness of services for female service users
- Increase the number of those desisting from offending
- Prevent individuals from entering the Criminal Justice System
- Lead to improved positive outcomes for our service users and their families
