Justice

Delivering probation services in the UK

In 2015 Sodexo Justice took over the ownership and management of six newly created Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) which were formerly part of the Probation Service in England and Wales.

This involves working with approximately 23000 people who are on probation in the community and a further 6000 who are on our caseload but are in custody.

Sodexo-managed CRCs supervise people who have been convicted of crime by the courts and are sentenced to a variety of Community Orders. We also supervising those leaving prison under Licence. The CRCs ensure that offenders complete their sentences, undertake any requirements given to them by the court such as unpaid work and offending behaviour programmes. We also support them to create a more secure lifestyle, including finding work, education and training, dealing with relationships or tackling an addiction.

Sodexo’s model focuses on creating a positive future for the people we supervise, and supporting victims and their families. Our aim is to improve the Quality of Life in our communities by reducing reoffending and equipping offenders to lead law abiding lives as individuals and citizens.

Our ‘model’ takes a person-centered approach, working with the individual offender in identifying both their strengths and what they need to work on to stop offending and improve their future prospects.

Sodexo works with a range of community based partners who are experts in their field, offering a range of support services such as help with finding a home, starting a job or training course, overcoming addiction, dealing with mental health problems, getting family or parenting support, and managing money. These services are provided in the local community so that offenders can access them easily in a more informal setting.
