With almost half of all crime committed by people who have already been through the criminal justice system, the cost of reducing re-offending is rising and is now costing the taxpayer around £15 billion per year.

 The Education and Employment Strategy, launched by the Government earlier this year sets out new measures to boost skills of ex-offenders and help them secure employment. A creation of a new body – New Futures Network which will work alongside employers, aims to provide a key role in linking local businesses directly with their local prisons.

Westminster Insight’s new Reducing Re-offending Conference brings you the latest approaches and strategies to support and rehabilitate offenders and reduce re-offending. Digest the keynote from the Director of Youth Justice & Offender Policy Directorate at the Ministry of Justice. Phil Douglas will talk about the Government’s initiative to help offenders get the right skills for employment, as well as delivering more effective and tailored interventions for offenders who are vulnerable.

Conference Highlights:

  • An update on the cross-government approach to reducing re-offending
  • How a prison is leading the way in helping to transform the lives of offenders by getting them into employment
  • Discussion on effective partnership working across all agencies to reduce re-offending
  • The ‘Whole Systems Approach’ (WSA) model to supporting women offenders
  • Successfully diverting offenders from criminal justice into treatment through Community Sentence Treatment Requirements
  • Prevention and early intervention of offending behaviour through the mitigation of the negative impacts of adverse childhood experiences (ACE)
  • The importance of provision of a stable and secure accommodation in reducing re-offending
