A personalised approach to prison resettlement: Lessons from a pilot project

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.
