A Model of Community Reintegration

Jo Deakin, University of Manchester

This paper will define a model of community reintegration, with special reference to women offenders. The paper is particularly concerned with the experiences of women who have been made subject to a community penalty. It is usual for community reintegration to be linked to employment and basic skills programmes. However, the authors are concerned with considering how social networks contribute to community reintegration and developing a model to include such networks in criminal justice interventions. The authors will draw upon findings from a recent research study.
