Who we are:
Key Changes is a not for profit company based in Sheffield which covers Sheffield, Barnsley and Rotherham. The project is designed to empower and tackle personal and social obstacles, both in custody and upon release. We aim to achieve this by equipping women with the skills and strategies to ensure a successful release plan. We also aim to raise awareness in the community with the use of conferencing to the public to understand the deep rooted issues in society which may lead to offending and other issues women face.
Type of knowledge or skills needed:
If you’re passionate about working to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable women, we’d really like to hear from you! Your contribution can be anything from research to mentoring, and can be as much or as little as you like. If you’ve been through the Criminal Justice System yourself and would like to volunteer we’d love to hear from you!
