Normally, offenders who have served sentences in custody are expected to return to their home area.
Probation trusts will work closely with local authority housing services and the police to make sure that offenders are appropriately managed in the community. Applicants for social housing must demonstrate to local housing authorities that they have a local connection; offender managers work closely with local authorities to verify this connection, and to protect the public by mitigating any risks, particularly to victims
Trusts are also active members of Community Safety Partnerships, which are responsible for developing local strategies for reducing reoffending.
