KSS CRC delivers a wide range of interventions and wraparound support to deliver the sentence of the courts and meet service user needs across a diverse local geography. Our network of 15 local probation offices provide a welcoming, rehabilitative environment for service users and our partnership agencies.
We analyse data on factors linked to offending behaviour to inform our understanding of crime trends and to review and update our suite of interventions.
Our research unit provides us with evidence of what works to make sure our programmes are effective in reducing the risk of reoffending and harm, and to help individuals make positive changes to their lives.
Minister of State (Ministry of Justice), singled out Kent Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company as an example of ‘best practice’, saying it had shown an excellent delivery of unpaid work, and have a comprehensive range of programmes on offer, as well as ‘outstanding leadership’.
We allocate a case manager to people we supervise. The case manager oversees the sentence, assesses the service user’s risk and needs, ensures all the elements of the sentence plan are delivered and takes enforcement action. This includes overseeing interventions and wraparound support to improve the service user’s compliance.
Throughout the supervision period, the case manager has regular face-to-face contact with the service user, according to the sentence requirements and service user’s level of risk, need and motivation.
