Resource: Shine Annual Report Launched

The annual report for Shine Women's Mentoring Service was launched at the programme's Board meeting in Edinburgh this week.  The report looks at how the service has grown since it was first established in 2013 and highlights the successes and key challenges faced over the past year.  

Through case studies and other media it highlights some of the achievements of women supported by Shine in the past year. It shows how Shine has exceeded many of its targets, such as the level of sustained engagement by mentees post-release from prison.

Tom Halpin, Chief Executive of Sacro, said:

"I am delighted to receive Shine's latest annual report covering 2016/17. The range of service being provided to so many vulnerable women in Scotland by our partners across public and third sector is so important in tackling the complex issues they face. It is evident that Shine Mentoring provides essential support for women in our Justice System to be safe and improve their chances for healthy lives."

The full report is available here and further information is available from the Shine blog.
