Our approach

Catch22 delivers offender management, rehabilitation and gangs work in prisons and in the community. At the heart of our rehabilitative and restorative work is the belief that relationships are crucial to effective desistance from crime.

Catch22 run 21 justice services across 18 prisons. Last year we worked with:

  • 26,069 service users in custody
  • 12,000 victims
  • 42,000 service users in total

Our diversion and rehabilitation justice work is based on:

  • a thorough assessment of risk and need
  • interventions that are tailored to meet the needs of each service user
  • forming high quality relationships that are designed to promote engagement and desistance
  • working with local partners and service experts to ensure the best use of different skills, knowledge and resources available

Do you need help with prison visits?

The Help With Prison Visits is a Government scheme that provides help for low income families or significant others towards the cost of travelling to prison visits.
