Re-Start involves its service users in the delivery of services; for example, ex-offenders, survivors of domestic violence and service users with mental health issues. Actually employing ex-offenders means that Re-Start “walks its own talk” and this has earned respect from employers who can experience examples of people who have experienced the criminal justice system as offenders, but who, not only are not offending – but committed to putting their skills to work for social benefit. It earns respect with programme participants – they know they are understood, accepted and respected. Indeed, this gives us the unique ability to gain the trust of, access to, and insight from offenders within the criminal justice system.

Services include :

  • Following receipt of referrals – Comprehensive Assessments of Need undertaken by social work students under supervision of a qualified social worker / psychologists. This is then followed up by a Care Plan.
  • Support to service users available around the clock – including a unique out of hours’ telephone crisis intervention service.
  • Drop-in / day centre type support for groups, e.g. people lacking confidence and self-esteem.
