Help with the law
You can speak to any of our case workers if you have any concerns or worries. They have a wealth of experience and can help women who are perpetrators of crime or survivors of attack.
Case Workers run a regular clinic at Styal prison to see women already known to MASH and take new referrals from the prison teams. They work with women through their arrest, sentence and release.
Life After Prison
The focus of visiting women in prison is to put together a resettlement plan for the day they are released, which includes: developing a new daily routine, arranging support groups, having prescriptions in place for drug treatment and finding a home.
We can pick up women on their day of release to ensure they get their prescription and arrive at their address, and follow up with a ‘day-after’ appointment. We then offer ongoing, one-on-one support.
Victims of Sexual Violence
As very few sex workers report attacks, MASH Case Workers have developed specialist knowledge in this area to work with women who have been victims of rape or sexual assault. Their involvement is key to sex workers having the confidence to make reports and to remain engaged through the lengthy court process.
MASH recently supported three women attacked in the Thomas Hall case, which resulted in the perpetrator being detained indefinitely at maximum security Ashworth Hospital in summer 2013.
If you would like to speak with a MASH Case Worker, please contact MASH on 0161 273 4555, or freephone on 0800 1830 499.
