CRI’s aims, which are carried out for the public benefit, are to prevent crime and provide opportunities for people to make permanent, positive changes to their lives. It seeks to achieve this through:
• improving the quality of existing services; • increasing the range and geographical spread of services; and
• enhancing its capacity to support the delivery of these services.
In this respect, it is CRI’s strategic intention to continue to:
• intervene at the right moment – seeking to engage with a greater number of families and young people by developing and extending the services that we already provide; • stay involved until the right moment - rehabilitation remains the key thread that runs through CRI’s strategy. The intention is that by staying involved longer we ensure that the changes people have already made in their lives can be sustained.
CRI will continue to achieve these aims by working in collaboration with its local stakeholders and commissioners and designing services that are compatible with and integrated into our partners’ plans. This approach means CRI is able to effectively address social care, community safety and criminal justice issues and develop strong working relationships for the achievement of its objectives.
Objectives and Activities
CRI works in partnership with individuals, families and communities affected by drugs, alcohol, crime, homelessness, domestic abuse, and antisocial behaviour. We encourage and motivate people to manage their problems and support them to find solutions that will enable them to live safer and healthier lives. Our aim is to empower individuals and communities to take control of their own lives and discover and achieve their full potential. In so doing, we seek to make whole communities safer.
