Services for Women

Direction aims to improve the quality of life for women and their families in the community particularly where they have been affected by the criminal justice system or affected by family members who may be connected to crime.

Women are typically affected in a very different way by crime and have very different needs.  Direction can help signpost women to women specific services across Bedfordshire to improve their quality life along with their families.
