On September 1, 2023, C.S.I. Nadez – Skopje started the implementation of the project “SUPPORT FOR A NEW BEGINNING of women convicts, previously convicted and women under probation supervision from the city of Skopje”, as part of the project “Establishing services in the community to support the resocialization and reintegration of ex-convicts” implemented by The Macedonian Association of Young Lawyers, and financially supported by the European Union within the program IPA/2022/433-960.

The goal of the project is to help the most vulnerable female convicts, previously convicted and/or women under probation supervision to live a responsible life, distance themselves from the past and take an active role in planning their own future after leaving prison and/or after serving time of the punishment. 10 women from the territory of the city of Skopje will be involved in the project.

The main activities of the project are:

– Providing individual and/or group psychosocial support to overcome the psychological conditions associated with serving a prison sentence and providing legal assistance to protect the rights of women convicts, previously convicted and/or women under probation supervision after they leave the institution and serve their sentence ;

– Strengthening communication and cooperation with public institutions;

– Strengthening the capacities of C.S.I. Nadez for provision of national services (service provider) for resocialization, reintegration and post-penal care in accordance with legal regulations but also in accordance with the best international and European standards.
