Through the Crossover Programme, the Ministry of Justice will pilot a new form of personal support for children leaving custody to improve their resettlement outcomes (e.g. access to accommodation, education, training, employment and mental health support) and reduce reoffending in the long term. It will also inform long-term policy development. Funding for this pilot programme will be provided through a competed grant worth £2.3m in total. Voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations will receive funding to employ 'resettlement linkworkers' who will provide intensive one-to-one support to children, starting in custody and continuing into the community.
help children achieve improvement in education, training and employment, health, and potentially sustained reductions in reoffending;
broker support and help advocate for children once they are back in their community, including helping to resolve interpersonal issues, arranging referrals/ appointments early on and accompanying the child to appointments;
test how VCS workers can work together effectively with statutory practitioners to deliver improved outcomes;
complement the work of YOT workers and Resettlement Practitioners.

Complete Tender Coverage
Following Brexit, the new official Find a Tender system has been developed by UK Government to detail all public procurement contract opportunities expected to be over £122, 976 for Central Government or £189,330 for the remainder of the public sector e.g. NHS contracts, Local Authority contracts, Housing Association contracts. Publishing requirements for all of the public sector are in place to ensure transparency, fairness and open competition.
All UK public sector opportunities under these values, but over £10,000 for central government or over £25,000 for other public sector organisations, are still required to be published on Contracts Finder. Scotland, Wales and NI also have their own dedicated sites: Public Contracts Scotland, Sell2Wales, eSourcing NI and eTendersNI.
