Mentoring Services to support vulnerable individuals

Received: 8 March 2021

Ex-Offenders, Re-settlement and Offender Management (Adult & Youth Offending)
For both adult and youth offending, please provide details of what provision is currently in place to support the re-settlement of offenders who have been or will shortly be released from custody. Please include details of any providers delivering this service locally, how many clients (ex-offenders) are managed through this service per year, the annual value of the service, the scope of this service (i.e. a copy of the specification), the expiry date of this service and your commissioning intentions for recommissioning this service.
(In this area, significant cost avoidance can be achieved through the reduction in re-offending rates, through our effective re-settlement and mentoring programmes.) Please also provide the contact details for the relevant commissioner and let us know if you would welcome a further discussion with AIR Network.

Substance Misuse Outreach
Please provide details of what provision is currently in place to identify hard-to-reach individuals who may require support for substance misuse (i.e. outreach). Please include details of any providers delivering this service locally, the annual value of the service, the scope of this service (i.e. a copy of the specification), the expiry date of this service and your commissioning intentions for recommissioning this service. If you're unable to provide this information because the 'outreach' element forms part of a larger substance misuse service, please provide what details you can in relation to that service instead.
(In this area, we have significantly improved outcomes through the early identification of individuals previously unknown to the Drugs/Alcohol Teams.) Please also provide the contact details for the relevant commissioner and let us know if you would welcome a further discussion with AIR Network.

Mentoring for Adolescents, Children in Care and/or Children on the Edge of Care
Please provide details of what mentoring provision is currently in place to support adolescents, looked after children and/or children on the edge of care. Please include details of any providers delivering these services locally, how many children & young people are managed through these services per year, the annual value of these services, the scope of these services (i.e. copies of the specifications), the expiry date of these services and your commissioning intentions for recommissioning these services.
(In this area, significant cost avoidance can be achieved through our intensive mentoring programmes in terms of improved contextual safeguarding, needing to bring fewer children coming into care, the reduction in the number of placement breakdowns and in the de-escalation of need.) Please also provide the contact details for the relevant commissioner and let us know if you would welcome a further discussion with AIR Network.

Mentoring for Individuals with Emotional, Health and Well-being Support Needs
Please provide details of what provision is currently in place to mentor individuals with emotional, health and well-being support.
