Partnership Opportunity – Greater Manchester Probation Services

The Health and Justice Partnership within Greater Manchester Probation services is working across the city region to improve care pathways for those leaving prison and those on probation.  

Their focus is to drive uptake of Community Sentence Treatment Requirements (CSTRs) for people on probation and to reach continuity of care of 75% of all prison leavers, with an alcohol or substance need, access to services referred to within 3 weeks.

They would like to explore the use of green/social prescribing as a route to improved outcomes and community integration and resettlement within their recovery pathways which cover a broad range of issues including drug and alcohol strategy, mental health, neurodiversity, autism and learning disability agenda, education, training and employment, housing/accommodation and also physical health/adult social care needs for prison leavers being resettled into the community.
