Supporting offenders into employment: a briefing note


24 October 2013

Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is a tried and tested approach, offering personalised support to help people with mental health problems into employment. The Centre is currently carrying out an evaluation to test whether this approach can meet the specific needs of offenders. We are working on this project in partnership with HM Prison Service, South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Enable, SOVA and the Institute of Mental Health (University of Nottingham).

Employment for Offenders is a three year research programme, which will implement and test an innovative approach to securing employment for offenders with mental health problems. The research will adopt an evidence-based approach to help offenders from three different prison populations secure employment on release from prison.
