At Nacro, we work in a number of community-based centres and within prisons, young offender institutions and secure training centres. We provide Matrix-accredited information, advice and guidance to help people gain secure, stable and affordable accommodation and to help them get back into education, training or employment. We work with people in custody and “through the gate” to help them resettle into the community.

Across our contracts we offer support such as:

  • signposting to other services
  • mentoring
  • in-work support, such as supporting their progression in and sustainment of purposeful activity
  • work around motivation, such as careers advice, CVs, etc
  • other services around finance, benefit and debt, such as resolving tenancy issues following imprisonment, or helping them open bank accounts or gain photographic identification
