Nacro BASS, commissioned by the Ministry of Justice, gives people who are eligible to be released from prison or bailed from court somewhere stable to live and the support they need to move on to an independent, crime-free future. It provides accommodation and support in the community to people who do not have a suitable address, or who need some extra support, during the period of their bail, Home Detention Curfew or Intensive Community Order.

We provide a mix of one-bed self-contained flats and two-, three- and four-bed shared houses with communal living space, kitchen and bathroom. Families can be accommodated where needed. Nacro Support Officers undertake regular visits to provide mandatory support and to monitor adherence to bail conditions and any licence requirements. We also help individuals to find stable accommodation to move on to and offer support with employment, managing money, health and wellbeing, substance misuse and relationship building if necessary.

Nacro BASS works in consultation with the Ministry of Justice, the Police, Local Authorities and Community Rehabilitation Companies.
