HMPPS CFO (Creating Future Opportunities) has secured funding to continue delivery of services to offenders considered hard to help and furthest away from the mainstream.
The CFO Evolution programme will build on the successes of the CFO3 and CFO Activity Hub programmes to create a single delivery programme which will complement existing HMPPS core services and provide resettlement support to individuals in custody and the community.
CFO Evolution Programme
The overall focus of HMPPS Creating Future Opportunities is to help offenders move towards mainstream provision or activity which reinforces the value of leading law-abiding lives, such as entering employment, education, training and interacting positively with their family and local community. This is achieved through facilitating access to comprehensive support mechanisms appropriate to their individual circumstance and assessed need, and as such is a key delivery vehicle for MoJ Strategic Outcome 2: Reduce Reoffending. CFO Evolution is not a standalone programme. It is designed to complement and support core HMPPS provision, increasing value for money from other projects and better preparing those socially excluded to make a positive contribution to society.
The CFO Evolution programme has four aims:
Aim 1: To provide a demonstrable sense of purpose for specific cohorts of offenders with complex needs by presenting them with clearly defined progression routes spanning both the custodial and community components of their total sentence.
Aim 2: To provide safe spaces where offenders can, and importantly are keen to, engage in a range of positive activities designed to foster community buy-in, increase wellbeing and develop the skills required to navigate through the array of issues that present barriers to successful community reintegration,
Aim 3: To increase effective engagement with mainstream or core services for those groups traditionally excluded,
Aim 4: To encourage participation in activities to assist individuals to lead law abiding lives.
