About the service


Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in line with the Government’s directives, we are working to provide continuing support by phone to those in prison, from the community, until further notice.

This contract is funded by the Oxleas NHS Trust to provide an additional resettlement service to offenders with medium to high mental health concerns, a high risk of re-offending and/or gang affiliation leaving HMP Belmarsh, HMP Thameside & HMP ISIS.
Support is for 12 weeks prior to release and up to 12 weeks post-release, and aims to ensure consistent access to ongoing health services, alongside reintegration into wider support services on release to reduce re-offending and improve health outcomes.

Aims of the contract are:

  • To secure safe accommodation
  • To maximise income by securing welfare benefits / employment
  • To re-establish positive relationships with family and friends
  • To seek and engage with health services in the community
  • To maintain existing tenancies
  • To seek any other support appropriate to the individual e.g. substance misuse services, counselling, debt advice etc.
  • To reduce re-offending by having a positive support structure in place
  • To engage with statutory and third sector agencies in order to reduce involvement in gangs, ASB and criminal activity
