Clinks‘ Working with Offenders Directory is a comprehensive, online database of services to offenders in prison and the community. It provides details of voluntary and community sector services available to offenders and their families to aid the rehabilitation process.

The new version includes an improved search function which allows users to search for services in a particular area, or type of service offered, for example. It is free of charge to use; ensuring a comprehensive listing of organisations and access by a large audience. Once populated the Working with Offenders Directory will be the first port of call for information on services to offenders.
