An innovative approach to reduce RE-OFFENDING

justice

INCREASED INVESTMENT

The Transforming Rehabilitation agenda has enabled the private sector to invest in new ways to address the high levels of re-offending.

Within our Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) areas, there was lots of evidence of good practice and collaboration at a local level but without consistent access to local funds.

Working with our partners we have developed new funding streams including an ‘Innovation Fund’. The aim of the Innovation Fund is to support our CRCs to try out new pioneering, innovative approaches to reducing re-offending.

The Innovation Fund is being used to develop:

  • Innovative services delivered through voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations
  • Pioneering and efficient services and practices delivered through the CRC
  • A localised discretionary fund to be used to support offenders e.g. suits for interview. This investment in local projects helps increase the diversity of our local supply chain and stimulates a creative approach to reducing re-offending rates.

Evaluation is built in so that we can test what really works. Those projects with demonstrable results on reducing re-offending rates will be considered for further roll out in other areas.

So far, over £560,000 of grants have been agreed to support new projects in our CRCs
