We supervise offenders aged 18 and over in the community who are sentenced by the court to either a Community Order or a Suspended Sentence Order. We also supervise people allocated to our service who are in custody and those released from prison on licence. CGM CRC commissions a service called Through the Gate which aims to help prisoners preparing to make the transition from custody through to the community.
The best way to prevent people from becoming victims of crime is to stop people from committing crime. This is why rehabilitation is central to our approach. Our skilled probation staff use our innovative Interchange Model in order to affect change. We designed the model with a view to supporting people on probation by focusing on their strengths. We are also working with Manchester Metropolitan University to research and evaluate the model.
Our approach to reducing re-offending focuses on not only holding people to account for their actions, but on supporting their rehabilitation.
