Guidance

Welcome to PrisonerActionNet Guidance.

This section of the website offers guidance and resources  on supporting offenders through the court, prison and probation systems and into successful resettlement on release. 

The guidance section is in five parts:

  • Courts and sentencing: the importance of an effective and transparent criminal justice system to ensure offenders begin their sentences with a clear understanding of their crime and its impact. 
  • Managing myself: guidance on key areas of offenders' personal, social and emotional psychology which may underpin their offending behaviour or otherwise act as a barrier to resettlement. Guidance in this section includes how to inculcate a positive sense of personal identity and identity in relationship to other people and the community, as well as mindfulness, empathy and creativity.
  • Getting sorted: this section details the practical changes an offender can make during their imprisonment to best support their successful resettlement on release. This includes work, training and learning, substance misuse and mental and physical health.
  • Moving on: this section covers the 'through the gate' support and incentives that can motivate and enable offenders to establish themselves successfully on release. This includes continued health and mental health support, relationships with others, housing, employment and addressing offending behaviour. 
  • Resources: comprising good practice examples
