Transforming Rehabilitation


Ormiston Families works with Sodexo and a range of other partner agencies to deliver the government’s Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) programme across the East of England.

Ormiston Families' Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) service works with men and women who are supervised by a community rehabilitation company (CRC) or the National Probation Service (NPS) under a Community Order or Licence.

Ormiston Families' TR service provides a range of family support interventions on behalf of the three Sodexo CRCs in Essex, Norfolk & Suffolk and BeNCH (Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire).

We work with the service user and sometimes other family members to help:

  • establish, or maintain supportive community networks.
  • reduce the impact of offending on children.
  • break intergenerational cycles of offending, including domestic abuse.

Overview of Service Delivery Model in the Community

Although this list is not exclusive, we will typically work with service users and their families to provide support with one or more of the following:


Child contact

Maintaining or establishing contact with children

Social services

Social services involvement with children or vulnerable adult


Parenting advice / support

School attendance

Offence is related to failing to ensure child's school attendance


Relationship advice / support

Community integration

Help to increase support network in community

Support for other family member

Support for another family member e.g. parent or child, if their need is impacting directly on the service user's rehabilitation


Our family support workers use a flexible approach of one-to-one and group support.  Following an initial assessment, a service user may engage in one or more of the following in no specified order:

  • Group programme – e.g. "Who am I?" Group (5 x 2hr sessions)
  • One-to-one –  individual sessions
  • Group Workshop – single session group workshop e.g. Child Contact Workshop
