Two weeks ago in Manchester I made some very rewarding visits. The first was to the Women’s Centre, which provides really effective support to women offenders or women who might be at risk of becoming involved in the criminal justice system. Most women who get prison sentences serve literally just a few days, but in that time everything in their lives can fall apart - often they lose their home or their children. There’s so much evidence that women offenders present less risk to society, and as many have often been victims of abuse themselves, punishment alone won’t work. The women’s centre is a really cost effective alternative to prison for these women, and gets much better results. 
 
After that visit, I headed over to the Greater Manchester Refugee Integration conference, where refugees and community groups were discussing what we can do to make refugees who flee persecution welcome here. Helping them to settle into their new community is so important, so access to English classes, help to find a job or training, and sharing different cultural experiences are all important. And in fact this is exactly what people said at my community integration event in Old Trafford that I wrote about in my last blog.
 
That Saturday also saw me spend time with two different, fabulous groups. I completed the final kilometre of the PSP Association’s virtual 5K charity walk in Davyhulme, walking with volunteers and families to raise awareness of this little known disease. Then it was on to meet Diaspora Women in Unity who launched their Mukabo campaign for road safety in Zambia. Developing countries have much higher rates of road accidents, and I want to pay a special tribute to my constituent Carolyne who has set up this group as a result of a tragedy in her home community that took many lives.
