Lived Experience Research:
Women with convictions on charity boards
In 2021, we delivered our inaugural Lived Experience Trustees training programme, in partnership with Women In Prison, working to train a group of fourteen women to become trustees on charity boards.
A core component of our work included preliminary research which included interviews with women with convictions who were currently serving as trustees or had previously served as trustees, as well as interviews with prospective trustees also with convictions.
In our research report, we outline the barriers that they faced and the critical success factors.
