Our friendly Offender Support Team service offers a comprehensive package of support to ex-offenders 2 months prior and 12 months post their release from prison. The Offender Support team’s main objective is to reduce re-offending rates across the city. Support available includes :
ADDICTION &MENTAL HEALTH
Prison pickups and transport to specific appointments after release
Signposting to organisations that help with substance abuse or support people with mental health issues.
Help in applying for benefits and providing supporting letters for specific benefits.
Securing volunteering opportunities at New Wortley Community Centre and other venues and organisations across the city.
Carrying out welfare visits to service users who are socially isolated. This can include delivering food packages and getting them involved in activities at NWCC.
Help registering a housing application and acting as an advocate on behalf of the service user in securing suitable housing; we can also make referrals to emergency housing providers. Once rehoused we can usually help secure furniture from various charitable sources.
The team also offers employment support to residents of New Wortley and Armley. We can help you with CV writing, job searching, job applications and attending an interview. The support we offer is tailored to you and our team is always happy to help.
