Investing in rehabilitation

This programme makes grants to support the rehabilitation of offenders and to help reduce the collateral consequences of their imprisonment for their families, with the aim of reducing reoffending.

Each year, around 88,000 people are sent to prison and 150,000 are given a probation order.  Many of these individuals will have had chaotic and complicated lives: growing up in local authority care, excluded from school, living with drug or alcohol problems or struggling with mental health issues.    This programme supports organisations that work to break the pernicious cycle of reoffending; helping offenders and their families move forward to build better lives, with real options for a meaningful and positive future within their communities.
