About this survey

Clinks and Birth Companions want to increase our knowledge of the needs and experiences of pregnant women and those who have given birth in the last two years who are sentenced to community orders or are being supervised under post-release licence conditions. This includes women whose children may have been removed from their care.
As part of this work we want to gain a better understanding of these women’s key needs as identified by the voluntary sector organisations working with them, current challenges in meeting their needs, and how to overcome these.

Completion of the following survey will be of great value in relation to this.
The survey is split into three sections:
  • Exploring your own organisation’s work with pregnant women and new mothers in the community who are in contact with the criminal justice system
  • Your work with external agencies
  • The impact of Covid-19 on the pregnant women and new mothers you support.
Your responses will be anonymous, although we would like to list the organisations who have contributed to the research at the end of our final report. If you are happy for your organisation to be included in this list please provide the name at the end of the survey.

The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete.

This survey will close on the 31st December 2020. If you have any questions about this survey or the work that it is contributing to, or would like to provide further detail on your answers, please contact Kirsty Kitchen at
