About us

We aim to change lives for the better by reducing re-offending and risk of harm, and improving the quality of life of those in under our supervision and care. We will achieve this by improving the quality of life of our own people and those in our care, by growing our business and by increasing the value we bring through innovation.

Our custodial services in prisons

We deliver the total operation of five prisons in England and Scotland, managing over 5,000 prisoners in high and medium security facilities, of which over 800 are women.

Our focus is on reducing reoffending through rehabilitation. We support people in our care to change their lives for the better by providing opportunities for purposeful activity and employment skills, education and rehabilitation support services.

Our probation services in the community

Sodexo Justice owns six Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) which aim to change the way that offenders are managed in the community, building on historic good practice while encouraging greater innovation in reducing reoffending. 

We work towards creating a positive future for the people we work with – offenders, victims and their families, communities, partners and employees. We have formed a strategic partnership with leading crime reducing charity Nacro to help deliver this service.

We supervise over 20,500 offenders in the community and 6,200 people in prison at any one time, including all individuals sentenced to less than 12 months in prison.

We aim to protect the public by delivering effective offender management and rehabilitation services to offenders who pose a low and medium risk of harm. This could mean managing people who have been convicted of crimes such as shoplifting, burglary, harassment, alcohol-related motoring offences and domestic abuse.
