A new MoJ funding programme has recently been announced, which will support organisation working to reduce reoffending in England and Wales.

Grant funding will be provided for national voluntary sector infrastructure organisations to support and represent front line voluntary organisations and social enterprises working to reduce adult and youth reoffending. Both single organisations and partnerships will be supported, with grants of up to £700,000 a year available for a maximum of three years.

The programme seeks to ensure the existence of a collaborative, accountable and effective national infrastructure representing and supporting diverse civil society organisations working to reduce reoffending. Specific outcomes are sought in relation to:

  • promoting and supporting social action
  • volunteering and mentoring
  • representation and voice
  • enabling effective communication and partnership working; and
  • capacity building.
