Neighbourhood by Neighbourhood: local action to reduce re-offending (November 2006)
Produced by the Coalition on Social and Criminal Justice, this publication looks at whether community-based sentences can offer a more effective alternative to prison sentences in the right circumstances.

Delivering Services to High-Risk Offenders (May 2006)
This scoping exercise sought to confirm whether or not there was evidence of VCS service delivery to high-risk offenders and to get a sense of how this work is managed.

Strategy for Women Offenders (April 2006)
The purpose of this paper is to identify a number of key principles which should govern the way in which services for women offenders are delivered by the Voluntary and Community Sector and, where relevant, how those services link with the National Offender Management Service, HM Prison Service, and National Probation Service.

Good Practice Guide (2002)
Clinks published this guide to assist with a wide range of issues likely to arise in the relationship between voluntary sector organisations and prisons.

Get Linked (2002)
This booklet looks at why links should be made with community-based agencies generally, and black and minority ethnic communities and community groups specifically. It shows the benefits that can result from these links.
