Helping offenders reintegrate into society

As part of our seven-year contract with the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) to provide probation and rehabilitation services for low and medium-risk offenders, we introduced ‘through-the-gate’ services to help offenders reintegrate into society.

We provide specialist support for those dealing with issues such as substance abuse, homelessness and debt management, as well as providing offenders with education and employability services from the final weeks in prison through to release and resettlement into the community.

Since we started mobilising the contracts in February 2015, our 2,000 probation staff have managed services for some 40,000 low-to-medium risk offenders in Cheshire and Greater Manchester; Hampshire and the Isle of Wight; Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire; Merseyside and West Yorkshire. We operate these contracts under Purple Futures, an Interserve-led partnership, which includes the charities Shelter and P3 and the social enterprise 3SC.
