ONE3ONE Solutions is a part of the National Offender Management Service, which is an Executive Agency of the Ministry of Justice.
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is one of the largest UK government departments, employing over 75,000 people and is responsible for around 500 courts, over 120 prisons, as well as probation services, and offender attendance centres.
The MoJ works in partnership across government to reform the criminal justice system, to serve the public and support the victims of crime, and is responsible for making new laws, strengthening democracy, and safeguarding human rights.
The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) is an Executive Agency of the Ministry of Justice.
Its role is to commission and provide offender management services in the community and in custody ensuring best value for money from public resources.
NOMS works to protect the public and reduce reoffending by delivering the punishment and orders of the courts and supporting rehabilitation by helping offenders to reform their lives.
The Employers' Forum for Reducing Re-offending (EFFRR)
The Employers' Forum for Reducing Re-offending is a group of local and national employers which focuses on promoting the benefits to business of employing ex-offenders.
EFFRR members include a range of employers from SMEs to multi-nationals such as Greggs and Marks & Spencer’s. EFFRR is chaired by Gregg’s People Director, Roisin Currie.
If you would like to find out more or become part of the forum visit the EFFRR website.
The development of ONE3ONE Solutions as an integral part of NOMS was aimed to bring together the delivery of Government policy on increasing work in prisons, liaising with commercial businesses, and the way we commission services for offenders.
ONE3ONE Solutions is responsible for increasing work, but also for commissioning prisons to deliver that work and support them in delivery. There is a strong case for having busy active prisons where large numbers of prisoners work – it makes sense in terms of payback to society, helping support the UK economy, playing a part in reducing further costly offending and providing increased value to the taxpayer.
We understand why people may have reservations in working with prisons and prisoners but over the years prisons have built considerable experience in providing all kinds of goods and services. If you think we might be able to help your businesses please do get in touch – you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Simon Boddis, Deputy Director and responsible for Commissioning in NOMS.
