Caroline Erentz became an ‘accidental activist’ following lived experience of the criminal justice system. Working with the Survivor Reference Groups of Scottish Women’s Aid and Rape Crisis Scotland, Caroline began contributing to policy in 2018. Of all the projects she has participated in, she is particularly passionate about the ‘Trauma Informed Justice: Knowledge and Skills Framework.’ Caroline has spoken at the Scottish Government’s Victims Advisory Board and Victim’s Taskforce. She has also given evidence to the Criminal Justice Committee in relation to the Victims, Witnesses, and Justice Reform (Scotland) Bill. Caroline is currently working with The Scottish Government, Rape Crisis Scotland and NHS Scotland, advocating for patients presenting to the SARCS network. She also works directly to support women facing homelessness in two Glasgow based projects. Caroline holds two business degrees and her previous experience was in the fashion industry. Without meaning to follow the plot of Legally Blonde, she was offered a scholarship by her Alma Mater to study the Graduate LLB in Law (2024). She was recently nominated for ‘Law Student of the Year’ at ‘Next 100’ Inspirational Women in Law Awards 2023 and for ‘Contributor to Gender Equality’ by UN Women UK. She is studying a secondary qualification alongside her LLB, to become an IDAA (an Independent Domestic Abuse Advocate). She is passionate about women’s rights and empowerment. Caroline is delighted to be part of Epione and helping to continue this important work.
