We engage with agencies both within the CRC and across London, tailoring a package of support to best meet each individual’s needs. CROs are trained in risk management and de-escalation and can also initiate enforcement proceedings when necessary.

We are looking for motivated staff who want to want to deliver services differently and develop new skills in the process. Our Community Resettlement Hub provides a platform to deliver a wide range of innovative interventions and services that offer something in addition to the traditional one-to-one appointment model. As well as seeing clients in their designated CRC offices, Community Responsible Officers support the delivery of effective interventions at the Hub and will receive training in facilitating groups.

The role will be based predominantly in the designated CRC offices, with 1-2 days per week spent at the Penrose Community Rehabilitation Hub in Wembley. All CROs receive a holistic training package before they are able to manage a caseload of clients, and Penrose is committed to continual professional development through additional training, supervisions and appraisals.
