This Forum will provide participants with practical and professional guidance on how best to manage and rehabilitate offenders. Through policy updates and best practice case studies, delegates will analyse successful, innovative methods for improving offender management and rehabilitation.
Around half of all crime is committed by people who have already been through the criminal justice system with reoffending costing the taxpayer between £9.5 to £13 billion per year according to figures released by the Ministry of Justice.
In November 2016, the Ministry of Justice set out its latest policy guidance entitled Prison safety and reform. The Paper makes clear that the government is determined to address the issue of reoffending through wide-scale reform of offender management services, carrying out huge cultural and structural change to the way in which offenders are managed in prison as well as in communities upon release. At the heart of these changes is a determined effort to enable greater provision of education courses and support services through collaboration between stakeholders to ensure offenders have the right skills to be law abiding citizens upon release into their wider communities. Governors will now have far greater powers to determine what works to reform offenders. There will be a greater focus on outcomes in reforming offenders.
Given that the government is carrying out such far reaching changes to offender management with a greater emphasis on reducing reoffending, it is of vital importance that all groups understand and recognise the forthcoming changes and work together to ensure reoffending is reduced.
