About the event:

This one-day conference will bring together leading authorities from the Probation Service, Police, Courts, Prisons, Local Authorities, service commissioners, healthcare organisations, housing, voluntary & private organisations working with offenders to discuss the latest best practice designed to reduce reoffending rates amongst adult and juvenile offenders. The conference also aims to address what can be done to change the public perception of ex-offenders. They are more than their past and with this event we would like to address the stigma they face when re-entering into society. The conference will look at practical methods, programmes and interventions that benefit people who are at high risk of offending or repeat offending, social exclusion and poor mental health. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of partnership working and the service user experience.


  • Improving outcomes for youth in the Juvenile Justice System
  • Highlighting the importance of working collaboratively across all agencies in tackling the rising re-offending rates
  • Highlighting the role of the police in diverting offenders from the criminal justice syst
  • The value of adopting a restorative approach to reduce reoffending
  • Discuss what can be done to change the predominately negative public opinion regarding offenders when they are released back into the community
  • The role of stable accommodation and employment programmes in reducing re-offending
