This paper presents the findings of research conducted with female prisoners serving short sentences in the Dóchas Centre. The research focussed in particular on the needs of this cohort of women upon leaving prison. 16 women were interviewed within the Dóchas Centre; the study was primarily a qualitative one which aimed to understand the subjective experiences of the women and communicate their stories by giving primacy to the women’s own ‘voices’.
