SHINE attends 7th Keeping Women Out of Prison (KWOOP) Breakfast
SHINE for Kids was in inspirational company at the 7th Keeping Women Out of Prison (KWOOP) Breakfast hosted by Hon Catherine Cusack MLC.
The KWOOP Coalition for NSW is made up of individuals and organisations including service providers, philanthropic, not for profit, universities and women with lived experience of the criminal justice system, and is a sub-fund of the Sydney Community Foundation.
We were especially moved by the announcement that several properties have been made available through an incredible benefactor for women released from custody. Homelessness is such a pressing issue for people leaving prison, every action like this makes a difference.
Chair of the Justice Reform Initiative Robert Tickner also spoke passionately about the important work in prison reform.
KWOOP is supported by SHINE for Kids and the Sydney Women’s Fund & Be Kind Sydney, Deadly Connections Community & Justice Services Limited, Women’s Justice Network, Dress for Success Sydney, Community Restorative Centre (CRC), National Council of Women of Australia Country Women’s Association (CWA) of NSW and others.
