Staff Training

Anyone working within the Criminal Justice arena or providing services in the community accessed by older offenders or service users will benefit from some of the training packages we have to offer.

We have tailored bespoke packages for NPS, CRCs and their Partners, Prison Staff as well as Third Sector organisations working to support older service-users in the community. RECOOP has over 10 years of experience in delivering services to older offenders and prisoners.

We can tailor a bespoke training package for you around your business requirements to equip both practitioners and partner organisations with additional skills and an improved understanding of the older offender group.

Training themes include:

Working with older offenders in the community

o Supporting physical, mental health and wellbeing

o Understanding the differing needs and behaviours of this offender group

o Volunteering and supporting older offenders in the community

o The aging process and additional challenges for offenders

o Re-adjusting to community life after prison

o Age specific signposting and building community links

Working with older prisoners
