As from 1 May ‘Through the Gate’ (TTG) resettlement services went live nationally and Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) are now delivering this service to virtually all prisoners.

In this seminar Donna explained the legislative changes that came into force, what providers need to do with prisoners before their release and discussed the service arrangements in Cheshire and Greater Manchester. Donna also addressed some key commissioning questions.

Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity, has been commissioned to help provide TTG services across Cheshire and Greater Manchester and Sarah explained Shelter’s role within the new resettlement service.
