Key findings this quarter

Four requests are being published this quarter: The Bail Accommodation and Support Service’s housing support, HMP Kirklevington Grange’s resettlement programme, the Leeds Integrated Offender Management (IOM) programme and the former London Probation Trust’s peer mentoring service, all from the public sector.

The Bail Accommodation and Support Service’s (BASS) housing support

BASS provides short-term housing support to people who are eligible for bail or HDC but who do not have suitable accommodation. The main analysis focuses on those who received a custodial sentence, community order or suspended sentence order during 2010-14. Separate analyses are available for those who received a conditional discharge or fine after bail, and for people who were released from prison on HDC.

The overall results show that those who received the accommodation support were more likely to reoffend and had a higher frequency of reoffences than those who did not. More people would need to be analysed to determine the way in which the programme affects the average time to first reoffence for people who reoffend during a one-year period.

HMP Kirklevington Grange’s resettlement service

HMP Kirklevington Grange is an adult male resettlement prison where offenders transferred to the prison are approaching the end of long sentences. Kirklevington Grange’s resettlement strategy utilises extensive use of Release on Temporary Licence (ROTL), with the aim that individuals to progress to ROTL-based employment, education or training.

The overall results show that more people would need to be analysed to determine the way in which the programme affects a person’s reoffending behaviour, but this should not be taken to mean that the programme fails to affect it.

The Leeds Integrated Offender Management (IOM) programme

The Leeds IOM programme is a multi-agency intervention that targets prolific and priority offenders. It aims to monitor and restrict behaviour linked to offending, and to provide support to address the issues that lead to this behaviour. It takes place both in prison and in the community.

The overall results show that more people would need to be analysed to determine the way in which the programme affects a person’s reoffending behaviour, but this should not be taken to mean that the programme fails to affect it.

London Probation Trust’s peer mentoring service

The London Probation Trust (LPT, since subsumed by the National Probation Service and the London Community Rehabilitation Company) provided peer mentoring to offenders, offering practical support that would allow them to reintegrate with the community.

The overall results show that more people would need to be analysed to determine the way in which the programme affects a person’s reoffending behaviour, but this should not be taken to mean that the programme fails to affect it.
