This report summarises preliminary findings from the Offender Management Community Cohort Study (OMCCS) on levels of re-offending among offenders who received Community Orders. It looks at the factors associated with re-offending including offenders’ needs, attitudes and their relationship with their Offender Manager. These initial findings suggest that addressing offenders’ attitudes, their needs and the nature of their relationship with their Offender Manager are important in reducing re-offending. These findings are provisional and are based on incomplete re-offending data; the figures may change once the analysis is finalised.
