A winning streak!

I may be in Jersey but have been in close touch on some great news form acevo; we have today won a major grant from the MoJ to deliver a series of workshops to steer and support third sector organisations throughout the ‘Transforming Rehabilitation’ programme.

Having won the contract in partnership with Candour Collaborations and NCVO, all three organisations will be working throughout England and Wales to deliver tailored support, including:

       Information sessions regarding procurement opportunities and the MoJ landscape
       Networking sessions (in each of the proposed 21 contract package areas)
       Unit costs and Impact Measurement workshops
       Negotiation skills workshops
       TUPE and Pensions workshops

Having addressed some of the concerns to avoid a repeat of the work programme, it is encouraging to see that the department is positive about the potential that the sector has in delivering rehabilitation services.

I’m proud that our bid to deliver support has been successful. We have been closely involved in discussions on the new rehabilitation service. The MoJ has taken on board many of our ideas about working with the sector to utilise our skills and expertise in working with the hard end of offending and tackling the “revolving door" that sees so many released prisoners back in jail within a year.

And we are working with colleagues in NCVO and a partnership called Candour Collaborations. It shows a joined up sector working for members. So, the sun is shining on me as I end my trip at the Community Conference and on the endeavours of the brilliant acevo team who led this bid.
