How we manage offenders

Reducing re-offending pathways

NOMS reduces re-offending by working with offenders to change their behaviour and addressing the issues that may lead them to re-offend.

Under the National Reducing Re-offending Delivery Plan (new window) we drive this work forward through seven reducing re-offending pathways and three reducing re-offending alliances (new window).

We aim to:

  • establish cross-agency effective partnerships at national, regional and local level
  • establish alliances with the corporate, civic, and voluntary/faith sectors
  • prioritise information sharing and joint ownership of outcomes
  • develop innovative provision at local level alongside nationally-sponsored initiatives
