The Miranda Project is an innovative, gender specific program working with women at risk of both domestic violence and criminal justice system involvement.
The Miranda Project is assisting vulnerable women attending court, on community orders or exiting prison. Miranda aims to halt the increase in the women’s prison population through the provision of genuine support and the development of alternative pathways within the community.
Run by women, for women, the Miranda Project was funded in 2017 by Women NSW. Working on both sides of prison walls, Miranda has two specialist Aboriginal workers and provides holistic support including: casework, group activities, access to victims counselling and connections with other key services.
