Dear Ms Holly,
Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information
Wirral Borough Council can provide the following information alongside
your queries below:
1) What services are you currently commission specifically for women
o Substance use problems
o Mental health problems
o Involvement in Offending
We can confirm Public Health does support, through a grant, a project that
focuses specifically on women who have an involvement in offending. This
project is called Tomorrow's Women Wirral.
Public health does commission specialist services to work with women with
substance misuse problems, and/or are homeless, but these services are
generic and not women specific
> What organisation delivers the service and what are their contact
Tomorrow's Women Wirral is an independent third sector organisation that
works only with women and is particularly looking to engage women
Their contact details are as follows:

TWW currently have 3,200 current referrals. The project receives on
average 600 visits per week. These visits are to access a range of
interventions and resources provided by the service, or by the range of up

times. This enables the women who use the service to access the
appropriate support within a female only environment. This equates to
approximately 120 women attending the centre each day.
