A report detailing attempts to personalise the
support offerd to young offenders as they leave prison was
published today byleading criminal justice
charity revovlong doors. The project was partnership between local
and national organisations including In Control, and ran
from April 2011 to August 2012 to examine how the principles of
personalisation from the field of social care may be applied within
a criminal justice context.
The work had three key aspects. A dedicated project worker
provided support to offenders in prison and after release helping
them to develop a life plan, build support networks ('circles
of support') and, where required, access to a beneficiary fund to
assist participants in realising goals in their life plans.
