star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) are contractually required to provide services for female offenders that they are managing in the community, and to deliver resettlement services to offenders both before and following release from prison. As part of our reforms to probation, we have given providers the flexibility to innovate, and to tailor rehabilitative support to the particular needs of offenders locally. We have not, therefore, prescribed how much of the additional funding for CRCs must be spent on services for female offenders. Records detailing the specifics of each service available in every individual CRC could only be collated at disproportionate cost, however records detailing the organisations responsible for the provision of these services are available, with the most recent dated July 2017. All 21 CRCs have arrangements in place to address the needs of female offenders. 20 of the 21 CRCs have subcontracting arrangements in place to deliver these services, with Durham Tees Valley CRC providing the service directly. Across these 20 CRCs, there are 47 locally based organisations delivering targeted support for female offenders, addressing their specific needs locally. A further seven small providers deliver services across larger, geographically remote, areas.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>We have a robust contract management and assurance process in place for CRCs, and continue to assess their performance through a range of service levels, including their delivery of Through the Gate and how they are addressing the specific needs of female offenders.</p>
