We are Advance, a women-only organisation dedicated to helping women cope and recover from experiences of domestic abuse, as well as women who are at risk of offending or with short term sentences to reduce offending.

Our Minerva service works with those involved in the criminal justice system and offers safe, targeted support and advocacy to women. It aims to reduce re-offending, encourage desistance amongst repeat offenders, divert women from criminal justice involvement as early as possible and reduce the number of custodial sentences imposed by courts.
