Why focus on reducing women’s imprisonment in Scotland?

On 6 November 2017 the Transforming Lives programme published an updated briefing that highlights the progress being made in Scotland to reduce the use of imprisonment for women’s minor offending. It contains key facts and figures on the numbers of women imprisoned in Scotland, the characteristics of women in prison and the drivers to their offending, as well as information about community based services and solutions.
