Criminal Justice Directory

Welcome to the Criminal Justice Directory, the place to find out information and contact details on a range of voluntary and community sector organisations working across the criminal justice system. The former NEON directory has been rebranded to include organisations working with victims, preventionary activities, community safety activities as well as those working with offenders in the North East.

Organisation Aims/Missions:

We are community based and work one to one with offenders and partner agencies in a professional mentoring capacity to encourage and support offender compliance within the criminal justice system. Intensive personal support encourages life changes and reduces offending behaviour in order to establish stability within the community.

Overview of the services offered:

Work closely with offender management units and partner agencies to enhance the premium service offered to Priority and other Prolific Offenders (PPOs). We broker the services of existing service providers across all of the resettlement pathways and advocate on behalf of offenders. Our service is provided particularly, but not exclusively, to PPO schemes and is viable to all offenders.
