Each service draws upon the basket of interventions. The three organisation service streams access offenders at different points in the criminal justice system: 1. Diversion: where offenders are diverted away from the courts and do not receive a criminal record. 2. Non-Custodial Sentencing: an alternative to serving a sentence in prison, where the offender serves his sentence in the community. 3. Offender Reintegration: prison-based support to enhance an offender’s chance of successfully reintegrating back into society. All three service streams are open to both adults and children. In addition to the three formal service streams, this organisation also offers interventions for schools, communities and self-referring individuals who access organisation interventions outside the formal criminal justice system. This organisation also offers various Crime prevention and Reintegration programmes, as well as a special programme for Road Offences that can save individuals from receiving a Jail sentence
