Women and Mentoring (WAM) is a unique, early intervention mentoring program that supports women charged with a criminal offence by matching them with supportive female mentors.

Women and Mentoring equip women with the skills to navigate the complex courts system, minimise the negative effects of contact with the justice system, access services to deal with the underlying causes of criminality, and empower them for better outcomes. 


2018 Pitch

Funds raised: $30,000

Tricia was raising funds for Women and Mentoring to start receiving referrals to support criminalised women in Frankston. Frankston has the second highest number of female offenders in the state of Victoria, and rates of family violence, mental illness, alcohol and drug concerns, and Child Protection notifications that are greater than the Victorian average.
