Treasures Foundation was established to provide accommodation for women who have a history of drug abuse and offending.
We offer wide-ranging practical support which assists people to develop the skills to live independently. The need for improved services for women in the criminal justice system was recognised in a report prepared by Baroness Corston in 2007. You can find an update on that report here.
Just over one third of women leaving prison have no accommodation arranged for them upon their release, contributing to re-offending rates. With a wealth of collective experience in working with vulnerable women within the prison system, Treasures was founded to work with local communities throughout the UK to support vulnerable women on release from prison. This is achieved by offering halfway housing, rehabilitation centres and outreach programmes that create supportive environments in which women can recover from cycles of addiction, build healthy relationships and reach their full potential.
