Milton Keynes Centre
We support in improving the long-term outcomes for the most vulnerable offenders through carrying out assessments, monitoring progress, providing supporting, inspiring and influencing.
What we do
C2C Social Action has been established in Milton Keynes since December 2020 and has been fortunate enough to be working on two exciting projects funded by NHS England. The two projects have slightly different aims and objectives, however both support in improving the long-term outcomes for the most vulnerable offenders through carrying out assessments, monitoring progress, providing supporting, inspiring and influencing.
Our ongoing programmes
The current projects in Milton Keynes implement holistic approaches to improve the health and well-being of all service users through 1-1 support, group work and effectively communicating with other professionals and services. The projects focus on addressing access to services including GP’s, benefits and money management, housing, along with building confidence, self-worth, mental health, addiction, domestic violence, social networks and other identified areas highlighted by the referrer.
The Milton Keynes center offers two individual support services for both men and women, available through professional referrals only:
The Reconnect Project
Reconnect is a care after custody project provided to prison leavers and aims to ensure that the transfer into the community and health services is effective and comprehensive, aiming to reduce the risk of reoffending. Our service works in partnership with prison staff and probation services and is funded by NHS England.
The Reconnect Project provides 1-2-1 holistic support to individuals that are considered to be more vulnerable to poor health outcomes when leaving custodial environments and as a result require support with, accommodation, money management, social networks, healthy lifestyle choices and more.
We are accepting referrals for both men and women who are serving custodial sentences from 3 months prior to release to 28 days post release.
Prison leavers must be referred up to 3 months before release and up to 28 days after
Must be released into Milton Keynes.
Community Sentence Treatment Requirement Project (CSTRs)
The CSTR Project requires us to work alongside the Courts, The National Probation Service, IAPT and ARC to carry out Mental Health, Drugs and Alcohol pre-screening assessments on offenders that are suspected to have either mental health, drugs or alcohol difficulties. If identified as suitable during the screening process and the courts award an MHTR.
We will then work alongside relevant services to provide personalised support for each to improve the long-term perspectives of service users.
