Community support by prison


Community support services

We supervise around 23,000 offenders in the community and 6,000 offenders in prison at any one time. We work closely with a range of partner agencies such as the National Probation Service, courts, prison service, police, local authorities and the health service.

What we do

Sodexo Justice took ownership of six Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) in February 2015 as part of the government’s Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) Programme. We supervise around 23,000 offenders in the community and 6,000 offenders in prison at any one time. 


Our CRCs supervise people who have been convicted of crime by the courts and are given a Community or Custodial Sentence. 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 or access to education and training, finding stable accommodation, sort out debts and benefits, dealing with relationships or tackling an addiction.  


We provide enhanced through the gate services to help offenders settle back into the community after serving their custodial sentence and leaving prison.  We have strong local partnerships with statutory and voluntary organisations to support offenders to turn away from a life of crime.

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.
