Having somewhere stable to live acts as a platform for ex-offenders to be able to access the services and support needed to turn their back on crime for good. Published statistics for 2017/18 showing the accommodation status for all offenders can be found here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/community-performance-quarterly-mi-update-to-march-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/community-performance-quarterly-mi-update-to-march-2018</a></p><p> </p><p>As part of the Government initiative to reduce and ultimately eliminate rough sleeping across England, we are investing up to £6.4 million over two years in a pilot scheme to help ex-offenders into accommodation from three prisons, namely Bristol, Pentonville and Leeds. The pilots will focus on male prisoners who have served shorter sentences, who have been identified as having a risk of homelessness. Following a mobilisation period, we expect services to commence in Summer of this year. This is a concrete step in our commitment to tackling rough sleeping.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>All probation providers are now assessed on an annual basis by HM Inspectorate of Probation. In addition, HM Prison and Probation Service runs regular, targeted operational audits to assess performance. We take action on any performance concerns highlighted. Quarterly performance statistics are also available, at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/prison-and-probation-trusts-performance-statistics#community-performance-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/prison-and-probation-trusts-performance-statistics#community-performance-statistics</a></p><p> </p><p>We have been clear that probation services need to improve. While the National Probation Service is performing well, the performance of CRCs has too often been disappointing, for a variety of reasons.</p><p> </p><p>Last year, we announced our decision to end current Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) contracts early. Following this, we launched a consultation, Strengthening Probation, Building Confidence, and engaged with stakeholders and the market on the future of the probation system.</p><p> </p><p>We will set out detailed plans for the future of probation services shortly.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Due to the way in which cost information is recorded it is not possible to breakdown the costs associated with planning and implementing the Transforming Rehabilitation Programme in this way. The Ministry of Justice has produced an initial indicative assessment of the cost of bringing the case supervision component of services delivered by Community Rehabilitation Companies under the supervision of the National Probation Service. These costs include one off exit costs for current Community Rehabilitation Company contracts which are subject to change as the commercial framework and negotiations are not yet finalised with providers. Releasing these figures may compromise that negotiation so we cannot do so at this time.</p><p> </p><p>We believe that the continuation of the mixed market through our revised model offers the most sustainable approach for probation, and is the best option to build on the positive changes made under Transforming Rehabilitation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We are committed to ensuring that prisoners have sufficient financial support upon release from custody.</p><p>We have recently explored the current use of the Discharge Grant. This will help inform future Discharge policy direction, and help to ensure that Discharge policy contributes to ensuring the immediate basic needs of prisoners are met when they return to the community. We are currently analysing findings.</p><p>The purpose of the Discharge Grant is not to provide for all the prisoner’s needs after release; it is intended solely to assist them in the first few days after release and before they might reasonably be able to get a job or an appointment at a jobcentre and/or begin to access state benefits</p><p>We also are working with the Department for Work and Pensions to improve access to Universal Credit and ensure that they have the relevant identification documents. Offenders are able to access a DWP Work Coach prior to release, who can make an appointment as early as the day of release to complete their claim, and can receive an advance of a full month’s benefit, including the housing element where appropriate, within hours.</p>
