Who we are

Who we are

South Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) is one of 21 CRCs in England and Wales. We cover the areas of Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley and aim to maintain a reputation for delivering an excellent service to offenders, victims and stakeholders. As South Yorkshire CRC we manage the punishment and rehabilitation of approximately over 4000 low and medium risk offenders placed on community orders and those following release from custodial sentences. Our Head Office is located in Sheffield city centre. We service the four major conurbations of South Yorkshire through our Local Delivery Units (LDU) situated in Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster.

Our skilled, dedicated and experienced workforce work directly with offenders to tackle the causes of their offending behaviour, enabling them to turn their lives around and, where possible, rehabilitate them back into the community. We also work with offenders to ensure they understand the impact of their behaviour on victims of crime. There is county wide provision of Community Payback (Unpaid Work) and a Group Programmes Unit. We work closely with local partners, including the Police and Crime Commissioner, through local community safety partnerships.

On 1 February 2015 the ownership of the South Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company Ltd transferred to Sodexo as part of the Government's Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) programme.

Transforming Rehabilitation is a programme of reform that changes the way service users are managed in the community. It builds on historic good practice while providing greater scope for innovative approaches to reducing reoffending.

Following a national competition and share sale, Sodexo, in partnership with crime reduction charity Nacro, took ownership of six Community Rehabilitation Companies in England. South Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation is one of those six.

With more than two decades delivering justice services across the UK and a portfolio of five prisons, Sodexo brings a wealth of experience in managing and reducing reoffending. Nacro's position as the country's leading crime reduction charity also brings a strong heritage of helping offenders to turn their lives around.

While ownership of the six Community Rehabilitation Companies has transferred to Sodexo, day-to-day leadership of each Company remains with the local Chief Executive Officer.

Under Transforming Rehabilitation the CRCs continue to use their expertise to build on their strong foundations of protecting the public and reducing reoffending. They are now also responsible for supervising service users on release from prison sentences of less than 12 months. These individuals were not previously subject to statutory supervision.

Success in reducing reoffending will be rewarded by the Government on a payment by results basis.

This new direction presents an exciting opportunity to combine the skills, expertise and commitment of colleagues from across Community Rehabilitation Companies, Sodexo and Nacro to manage risk, deliver safer communities and change lives. We look forward to the future.
