We work with a wide variety of organisations who enhance the services we provide to address areas vital to reducing reoffending and protecting the public.
We see the development of key relationships with providers and employers as an important and continual part of our work.
Our partners from across the public, voluntary and community sectors span a range of services and specialisms including:
Through the Gate resettlement prison service
Charity St Giles Trust works with us to support men about to leave prison and resettle back into the community. Their work reduces reoffending in the community by tailoring support to an individual’s needs, such as helping them finding a job or a place to live. For further information, see our Through the Gate service page.
Through the Gate mentoring
PACT Futures works with us to deliver a mentoring service to people about to leave prison. Their mentors provide tailored support, including:
- advice and guidance
- signposting to additional support
- access to specialist help, such as drug and alcohol services.
- ongoing support in the community.
We recognise there is a connection between homelessness and crime. In 2018, around a quarter of service users we supervised left prison without accommodation. Justice Cymru provide housing advice and advocacy services including benefits, debt and financial support to individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Integrated Offender Management
We work with the police and the National Probation Service to deliver Integrated Offender Management (IOM) through co-located teams. We target intensive multi-agency management and support where it can be most effective in reducing reoffending and creating safer communities.
Domestic abuse and sex workers
Safer Wales, an independent charity, provides confidential support and help to men affected by domestic abuse. They also provide help to both men and women affected by sex work.
Drugs and alcohol
We work in partnership with substance misuse treatment providers so service users can access appropriate treatment. Our treatment partners deliver a range of group-work and psychosocial interventions.
Children and families
We recognise the role children and families play in helping service users to make positive changes in their lives. We work closely with the police and social services to safeguard children and adults, where we or other agencies identify a risk of harm.
