Figures for residents whose places are funded by the National Offender Management Service under the SLAs arc not recorded separately; the figures below are for the whole of the trust resident population. The proportion of trust residents under the SLAs during 2007-08 was around a third.

In 2007-08, (a) five trust residents absconded, and (b) 46 breached the conditions of their curfew, including three who had absconded. While all breaches of hostel rules, including minor ones such as use of bad language, are recorded in individual residents' files, overall numbers are not compiled— (c). However, where breaches of rules lead to a resident's eviction or recall to prison, that is recorded. In 2007-08, 99 residents were evicted, of whom 40 were recalled to prison,

One resident under the enhanced supervision SLA absconded during 2007-08. None breached curfew, and as explained above, there are no available records of other rule breaches.
