This service provides accommodation-based support for male offenders and men at risk of offending. This service is primarily for offenders who have low to medium-level support needs leaving prison and preventing re-offending. The service can be used as either a step-up or step-down from other supported accommodation.

Service users come from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances. The majority have been released from prison on Licence, effectively serving the final part of their sentence in the community, though we also work with service users on various Probation Orders and those on Bail. Referrals are made through a central referral system operated by London Probation. The service works closely with multiple agencies (probation officers, housing and benefits services) and provides support around substance misuse and accessing other health services.

Approved Premises play an important role in rehabilitation and community reintegration for these men who are ready to move forward and build a positive future.
