In March 2015, Shaw Trust was awarded National Offender Management Service (NOMS) Co-financing Organisation Round 3 (CFO3) contracts. CFO3 is a programme co-funded by the ESF for England and is aimed at improving the social inclusion of ex-offenders, in a bid to improve their lives and reduce re-offending by providing access to mainstream services, training, and employment opportunities. Shaw Trust is the prime contractor for London, the East of England and the South West of England.
In April 2017, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) replaced the National Offender Management Service (NOMS). The new agency has been structured to ensure that HMPPS and its supply chain are able to meet the specific needs of the people we work with, both in custody and in the community. The way that CFO3 is delivered on a day-to-day basis will not change.
Shaw Trust and our supply chain partners support gang members, women exploited by the sex industry, young offenders, individuals with a substance addiction and offenders with mental ill-health. We use a flexible and tailored approach to ensure that we enable our participants to turn their lives around and stop the cycle of offending.
Our goal is to enable the people we support to contribute positively to society. We do this by supporting our participants to gain lasting life and employability skills. We work with a range of specialist organisations to deliver the programme, ensuring we can offer our participants relevant and meaningful activity, and support.
