Usually by their mid 30’s many offenders including PPO’s (Prolific and Priority Offenders) are looking for a way out of a life of crime. Tempus Novo are well placed to help them with their team based at HMP Leeds. By engaging those offenders with the desire to change, we will co-ordinate a bespoke and personalised network of services both in custody and on release.
Our support strategy often starts several weeks before release from prison and continues for a minimum of 6 months once in employment. Employment plays a significant part in the rehabilitation of offenders and reduces the risk of re-offending by up to 50%. In fact our latest figures suggest it could be higher, as we currently have an 80% retention rate in work.
