Our approach to working with you
We will support you in your efforts to stop committing crimes. How this happens will be in your engagement or resettlement plan and will be based on the My Solution Rehabilitation Programme (MSRP for short). This programme focuses on a number of key areas that can be a problem and are linked to reoffending. It is designed to challenge attitudes, develop improved behaviour and skills needed for a crime-free life. We will work out what your needs are through an assessment and then agree with you which areas to focus on. These areas are known as routeways out of offending.
Service User Council – giving service users a voice
We work closely with User Voice to help us get valuable feedback from service users to shape the way we do things. The Service User Council, organised by charity User Voice together with KSS CRC, provides a forum for service users and probation staff to meet and discuss how we can improve what we do.
If you would like to take part in the Service User Council and are currently on probation, talk to your Responsible Officer about completing a referral form.
Next steps to employment
You may be assessed as needing help to find a job. If so, we will support you to find or improve your chances of finding work through training and education.
We hold job fairs for employers to meet with service users. If you are interested in information about these events, please speak to your Responsible Officer. Please also discuss with your Responsible Officer, if you need further information about disclosing your convictions to an employer or would like to develop your skills and job prospects by volunteering as a peer mentor.
