Rose Mahon our Head of Excellence and Development won “Criminal justice Champion” at the Howard League Community Awards. Rose has had a significant impact on the development of The Nelson Trust service response to women caught up in the criminal justice system and those at risk of the same. She has designed, developed and delivered award winning services that divert individuals away from the criminal justice system. Her knowledge and expertise helps define best practice such as trauma informed; her innovative thinking is used by others as resource to influence policy. She is dynamic to the extent that she ensures services continuously evolve to take service user need into account, as she strives to ensure that criminality is not added to the significant challenges people with multiple vulnerabilities face. Rose is passionate when it comes to advocating for the disadvantaged in the criminal justice system, she works tirelessly to make sure those without a voice are heard. Rose makes a big impression on all who come into contact with her, she has the ability to engage the most entrenched hard to reach complex women away from the criminal justice system and into a life of independence.
