Working with older offenders
A resource for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations
Clinks’ Do it Justice resources are designed to provide easily accessible information on key aspects of the criminal justice system (CJS). They provide introductory level information for the sector to support the development of services that assist people in their desistance from criminal behaviour.
This guide, written by RECOOP, is for voluntary organisations working in the CJS, to help them better understand the needs of older people in the CJS. It gives information on the needs and rights of older people in the CJS and advice on how to support them, so that frontline staff, volunteers and managers can design appropriate and responsive services.
