About us

Working with partners

NOMS recognises that to manage offenders well, we must work closely with local, regional and national partner organisations.

When offenders are committed to changing, they need to be assisted by the support of mainstream services. This includes access to healthcare, education, drug treatment, employment, social and family links, housing, and finance and benefits.

NOMS is committed to strong partnership working across Government, with local Government, employers and the voluntary and community sector, as well as with local people and communities.

Partnership working is in everyone's interest because tackling an offender's behaviour tackles social exclusion and helps make society better and safer for everyone.
