Local support for community re-engagement

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Norfolk Park Approved Premises provides community accommodation for high risk residents with a history of violent offending. Local MP Meg Munn recently visited and met Kevah Rejaie, the Senior Probation Officer, and other staff members.

Kevah told Meg that the majority of residents are those who have been released on licence, and that the Approved Premises acts as the first step in community re-engagement for them. Meg was impressed with the range of support available, such as groups on parenting, budgeting and cookery and the close links Norfolk Park has with Local Partnership Agencies.

The staff did express their concerns about the effects of the bedroom tax, and explained that due to the shortage of one bedroom social housing, the time residents spend at Norfolk Park is increasing. The Housing Department at Sheffield City Council do their best by allowing residents to apply for priority status, but Kevah stressed that this was a difficult process.

Meg said:

“Seeing the fantastic range of support and services available to residents at Norfolk Park gave me every confidence that offenders have everything available to them to successfully re-engage with the community.

The staff at Norfolk Park are doing a wonderful job not only in ensuring residents do not go on to reoffend, but by providing them with the necessary training and education to give them confidence and to feel like valued members of the community.”
