|Bradford Cyrenians STOP Service||
The aim of STOP is to break the cycle that sees offenders released from prison only to return after an unsuccessful rehabilitation. The STOP service offers temporary semi-supportive accommodation for ex-offending men and women aged 18+.
The scheme is aimed at diverting vulnerable people from re-offending, particularly those who have received custodial sentences of less than 12 months and/or repeat offenders.
Homelessness is a main factor towards offending and by providing stable accommodation we will mitigate this element. We will further enhance service users opportunity of succeeding by putting in place a comprehensive support package that will assist in addressing many of the complex needs presented by offenders and which contributes to their chaotic lifestyle. Working in partnership with key agencies such as the prison services and Youth Offending Teams the STOP team will offer intensive support that helps service users move on into their own accommodation within 6 months.
We aim to Help service users to develop coping strategies and life skills that help to prevent them from re-offending and returning to prison and/or becoming homeless.

How to join
Offering practical and emotional support to pregnant mums six weeks before the birth, during labour and six weeks after the birth, through trained volunteers.
Doula is the Greek word for wise-woman. Acting as a ‘professional friend’, volunteer doulas help women to make positive choices, accompany them to appointments, provide practical support at the birth, build positive relationships with other services and offer emotional support.
Our Bradford Doulas project supports women to make the best choices for themselves and their babies, helping them to achieve a positive birth experience and building their knowledge to enable them to make informed decisions about childbirth, nutrition and breastfeeding. Support from volunteer doulas can also connect families into network of other support services.
Families are carefully matched with volunteer doulas who are best suited to them (dependent on the woman’s needs, requests and circumstances).
Who will benefit? Over the first three years the project will aim to train at least 50 women to become accredited volunteer doulas, who will go on to support around 200 pregnant women in the Better Start Bradford area. The service is suitable for women who require support regarding maternal health and social wellbeing. Evidence tells us that where a woman receives support before the birth, during birth and after the birth, she is more likely to have a natural birth and a more positive birth experience.
Who provides it? The Bradford Doulas service has been commissioned by Better Start Bradford to run the Bradford Doulas project in Better Start Bradford, supporting more expectant women living in our area. The Project also is funded by Bradford City CCG and supports all women and families across the City CCG wards.
Where and when is it delivered? Most support is in the home and volunteer doulas also accompany women to appointments, antenatal classes and hospitals for birth. Training for volunteers doulas, is held at Carlisle Business Centre.
How do families register? If you are over 28 weeks pregnant and feel that you would benefit from the support of a doula, you can ask for free help by contacting Bradford Doulas on 01274 223 232 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a referral form. Women can also be referred by their midwife, doctor, health visitor, early year’s staff, social care, children’s centre, voluntary and community sector organisations or other Better Start Bradford projects.
