The mothers project started as a pilot programme at Auckland women's prison in Wiri, and it is now also running in Arohata and Christchurch women's prisons. It involves a team of volunteer lawyers regularly visiting and helping inmates, particularly with issues relating to the safety and care of their children. Wellington lawyer, Stacey Shortall is behind the initiative.
