We have given providers the flexibility to innovate and do what works to tailor rehabilitative support to the particular needs of offenders. Through-the-gate (TTG) resettlement services delivered by Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) mean that virtually all prisoners have access to targeted support to help them find accommodation and employment on release, and advice on finance, benefits and debt. For the West Midlands in particular, Staffordshire and West Midlands CRC have put in place joint case conferencing with partners to determine TTG services in the most complex cases. This ensures continuity of service for the individual leaving prison.
Offenders who are assessed as posing a higher risk of serious harm receive support and supervision from the National Probation Service and may be required to reside in Approved Premises on release from custody.
