Wonder+ Scheme

The Wonder+ Scheme supports women offenders and those at risk of offending living in Norfolk.

It is a partnership between St Giles Trust, Future Projects and City Reach Health Services to offer advocacy, advice and guidance to women as well as helping them to access other services that may be of help to them.

If you are referred to the Wonder+ Scheme you will be met by one of our trained Link Workers who will undertake an assessment of your needs and make a plan with you according to what help you need.

The service is available to women living in Norfolk or intending to live in Norfolk who meet the following criteria:

  • Aged over 18 years of ages and:
  • Attending one of the Police Investigation Centres (PICs) in Wymondham, Kings Lynn, Aylesham, Great Yarmouth and Bury St Edmunds.
  • Engaging with the local Policing teams and/or teams within the Early Help Hubs across the county.
  • In receipt of support from another statutory or voluntary agencies but requiring more specialist support.

The team will provide a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space.

We will work alongside you to develop an individually tailored support plan which will incorporate your needs and goals.We will offer support, advice, guidance and advocacy, both practical and emotional, in areas such as:

  • Housing
