In February 2009, the Ministry of Justice committed £15.6 million to build the capacity of one stop shop services at women’s centres and other specialist provision for women offenders. In October 2009, Women in Prison and the Pankhurst Centre were awarded funding to establish a unique, holistic support service in Manchester and Trafford for women in contact with the criminal justice system. The Women MATTA project was launched - individual and group-based support was provided to women at the Pankhurst Centre, in prisons, in magistrate’s courts and in police custody suites across the target area.
The Women MATTA project has seen a few changes recently
we have now moved from the Pankhurst Centre and we currently have a lovely new office at Unit 3 in the Cornbrook Centre in Hulme. This is just a short walk from the city centre and is a 5 minute walk from the metro stop at Cornbrook and is also serviced by a number of different bus routes.
