Details of all Specific national or local scheme/intervention(s) available

Supervision is provided by Justice Service social workers who will provide tailored interventions to address offending behaviour and meet assessed risk/needs. A case management plan will be included in the Criminal Justice Social Work Reports, outlining areas of risk, needs to be addressed and plans for interventions.
Interventions may include referral to partner agencies based within the Justice Services Building to address social and welfare needs, mental or physical health, or tenancy support. NHS Keepwell Nurses and a Community Psychiatric Nurse are based on site. There is a Tackling Inequalities and Improving Outcomes (TIIO) Project to support social and welfare needs. Onward referral may be made to agencies such as Cyrenians who are commissioned to provide employability support, outreach support and groupwork. Change Grow Live (CGL) provides support to address addictions issues with two recovery coordinators co-located with Justice Services.

Possible Outcomes

Interventions will be provided dependent on assessed risk/needs with a view to reducing the individual’s risk of re-offending and of any harm they may pose to themselves and/or others.

Process for Assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention

Assessment for suitability is carried out by Justice Service social workers via a Criminal Justice Social Work Report. Referrals are made to appropriate services for individuals subject to supervision by their social worker.
