We are committed to doing all we can to address the issues around female offending so we can better protect the public and deliver more effective rehabilitation.

Considering how we can best address the needs of female offenders to improve outcomes for them, their families and their communities, is a complex issue that we want to get right.

We are working hard to develop the Female Offender Strategy and we will publish in due course.
