Novus in Youth Custody
The contract we earned in 2015 to deliver 30 hours of education every week in HMYOI Cookham Wood enabled us to increase our activity in Young Offender Institutions. We now deliver our services in three of the four YOIs in England, and work closely with partners to continue to raise the aspirations and skills of offenders.
The offenders are at the heart of everything we do, so they are the most important partners of all. We listen to what they have to say in order to ensure they are on the right path.
The excellent working relationship we have with our partners provides a network that supports young people back into purposeful activity.
With all the partnership agencies working together, there is always going to be a better outcome.
Novus works closely with consortia partners to address many of the barriers to resettlement to improve outcomes for young people
Novus has been hugely supportive of supporting young people 'through the gate', with opportunities that could lead to future training and paid work
The partnership has enabled us to develop more innovative programmes of education delivery for young people
