Social reintegration

Development of social and interpersonal relationships that give offenders the opportunity to be actively engaged in roles that allow them to gain useful and valued skills, and practice ‘being competent’. This may involve: finding accommodation, employment, securing a place in further education or establishing basic daily social routines such as picking up children from school, shopping and cooking (Buchanan, 2004).
