No Offence! "Getting Your IOM Act Together" Conference


19th March 2013

Paintworks, Bath Rd, Bristol BS4 3EH

Conference Brief 

Bristol was chosen for this event as it is recognised as one of the exemplars of good practice for Integrated Offender Management.

Multi agency management for those with multiple needs, or ‘working together’ is not a new concept and of course its common sense for those who engage with individuals with multiple needs to co-ordinate their responses.

  • What does it all mean and what needs to be done and by whom to make YOUR multi agency response to YOUR local problems effective?
  • What key components do YOU need in place?
  • What support is available to you as well as for those you work with?
  • Why is strategic partnership as important as an operational one?
  • How can you ensure that your area has “a clear and common strategic vision of IOM that all agencies understand and are signed up to”?
  • How can you expand your partnerships to ensure that both statutory and voluntary sectors are represented?
  • What problems can really get in the way for your multi agency interventions? e.g. identifying and obtaining accommodation for offenders which can have a significant effect on the success of the whole programme.

This conference will provide both practical and theoretical approaches together with examples of good practice and innovative solutions to support you with the on-going development of your multi agency framework, so that you can target interventions towards those individuals in your community who are most in need whilst ensuring that “intensity of management relates directly to severity of risk”

As with all of our conferences, we will provide you with the opportunity to debate, network, support and be supported with the opportunity for all to benefit.

Collaborate! Building capacity for cross-sector solutions

This interactive workshop invites you to take part in the Skills for Justice trans-national Collaborate project. It aims to engage workshop participants in sharing the best of their experiences of collaborative working in supporting a multi-agency response to meeting the multiple needs of service users. The workshop will also provide a forum for exploring participants’ perspectives on a collective vision of what is needed from leaders and managers - from the front-line to those in the most senior roles - in successfully developing partnerships and increasing the effectiveness of IOM at the local level in the future.

Driven by discussion and debate, workshop activities will provide interactive opportunities to share perspectives and exchange ideas on multi-agency working within the IOM arena. With a focus on building the capacity of the justice sector workforce, contributions of participants with first-hand experience within the prison system and beyond will be drawn upon directly in providing a powerful perspective on the future design and delivery of impactful cross-sector solutions to support effective IOM going forward.

Clint Osborne & Suzi Moore
Walsall Council and Action for Prisoners Families

This workshop will look at the challenges faced by the families of offenders and prisoners and how a new and innovative collaboration in the West Midlands between Early Intervention services in Walsall and the IOM team are better meeting these families needs. The workshop will involve a short interactive presentation on the outcomes for prisoner’s families, followed by an explanation of how the IOM team and CAF service evolved to addressing these problems together. The hosts will present their experience of colocation working and what the successes and barriers have been along the way. The workshop will end with time for discussion and questions and suggestions on ways forward.
