Always Hope supports young men (aged 18-25) with care leaver status in prison and on release to improve their chances of rehabilitation and create a positive future.
This new innovation brings practitioners from prison, probation and leaving care services together with young men in prison with care leaver status, to integrate their support. The details needed to implement this strand of Always Hope – known as ‘Integrated Planning and Assessment’ (IPAA) are explained in this manual.
Always Hope also supports young adults to build a personal support network. Through a service such as Lifelong Links or Group Conferencing, the young adult identifies a sustainable network who will offer coordinated support while in prison and on release. This approach (and how it integrates with IPAA) is also explained in this manual.
