Reducing UK Recidivism

Reducing re-offending in the United Kingdom

Our aim is simple – to reduce reoffending in the United Kingdom (UK) by harnessing the skills of probation staff and delivering modern methods of rehabilitation which are rooted in the traditional values of the UK probation service.

“…I can honestly say it is down to one person why I have come so far. I can genuinely say that my probation officer has given me the opportunity to break the vicious cycle of recidivism, drugs, alcohol, criminal thought and behavior, and I shall forever be grateful. With his help I got my life back on track.” ~ Thames Valley Community Rehabilitation Company service user

MTC passionately believes in and seeks to embody the best, historic values of the probation service, care for the individual, respect for the professionalism of the probation service and, within it, the importance of learning – delivered in modern, innovative ways.

We’ll care for offenders and our employees by treating them as individuals, supporting their needs, and giving them the tools to progress. We also believe in the value of learning, as the best means by which offenders can be rehabilitated and our employees’ careers developed.
