Details
Shine is a national mentoring service for women offenders. The service is provided as a public social partnership (PSP); a strategic partnership between public and voluntary sector organisations. Sacro is the lead delivery partner and works with seven other voluntary sector agencies: Access to Industry, Apex Scotland, Barnardos, Circle Scotland, Turning Point Scotland, Venture Trust and The Wise Group.

Shine was launched in April 2013 and is now available all across Scotland.

The service is available to all adult females who are:

- Currently serving a custodial sentence in Scotland of less than four years and not subject to a statutory order or;
- on remand or;
- subject to a Community Payback Order.

Mentoring is a way of helping and supporting people in achieving their goals. The Shine Women's Mentoring service provides women with a mentor who will provide support on a one-to-one basis with many of the issues they might face in the community. A Shine mentor will discuss any issues the woman may have before participation with the programme. This will be done in prison, prior to release or in the community if serving a CPO.
