What we do

From 2015 to 2021, Sodexo managed six CRCs (Community Rehabilitation Companies) responsible for supervising people who had been convicted of crime by the courts and were given a community or custodial sentence. The CRCs ensured people completed their sentences and undertook any requirements such as unpaid work and behaviour change programmes. 

We also provided enhanced through the gate services to help people leaving prison settle back into the community after serving a custodial sentence. Our aim was to give people a chance to turn their lives around.

We are proud of our work and our strong local partnerships with statutory, third sector and voluntary organisations to support people to turn their lives around.

Creating positive futures

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.
