About the service

Penrose Criminal Justice Services are recruiting for a Community Team Coordinator

Working in partnership with the London Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) and MTCNovo, our service supports adult males sentenced to 12 months or less to resettle into the community and to break the cycle of reoffending. We provide guidance and support with a wide range of issues, from accommodation to training to financial advice, signposting our clients to relevant services in their area, as well as supporting them with any referral processes. We engage with agencies both within the CRC and across London, tailoring a package of support to best meet each individual’s needs. Our Community Responsible Officers are trained in risk management and de-escalation and can also initiate enforcement proceedings when necessary.
