This chapter explores the benefits and drawbacks to multi-agency working with women offenders and from the different perspectives of the Probation Service, voluntary agencies and service users. It examines what as been accomplished to date and argues that only with proper resourcing strategy in coordinated approach and shared goals will effective community support be facilitated to prevent the increased use of prison sentences for women.
