We work in partnership with the LankellyChase Foundation to deliver up to two partnerships a year where the subject of the research relates to women or girls who are involved with the criminal justice system or at risk of becoming involved and who have multiple and complex needs.
The LankellyChase Foundation exists to bring about change that will transform the quality of life of people who face severe and multiple disadvantage. They focus particularly on the persistent clustering of social harms such as homelessness, substance misuse, mental and physical illness, extreme poverty, and violence and abuse. They employ a number of different methodologies, including grant making, special initiatives and commissioned research and policy analysis. They aim to work in a problem solving way, supporting or promoting action based on a robust analysis of both the problem and its underlying drivers. Their fundamental goal is to help shift the way that people on the extreme margins are valued by society, so that policy, public debate and practice are focused on people’s capabilities and humanity.
