NOMS CFO. Where we fit Drugs Interventions Counselling Prison Education Housing Mainstream Alcohol Interventions Voluntary Organisations CFO Case Worker Action Plan Offender focused employment services Mentoring
The NOMS CFO Process Offenders are assessed as having significant barriers to employment (accommodation, drugs, health issues etc) The NOMS CFO Case Worker creates an action plan with the participant which aims to address their multiple barriers. The Case Worker begins work on the action plan, making referrals where appropriate and completing actions themselves The Case Worker continually re- assesses the action plan to make sure that it is appropriate and achieving its aim. As the barriers to employment begin to be addressed, the case worker will begin to focus on moving the participant into employment or education. At the end of the project participants either enter employment, education or are more able to engage with mainstream employment initiatives
