Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

An organization originally established in 1966 as the ‘National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders’, or ‘NACRO’. The aim of the charity was to set up practical services to help ex‐offenders resettle, work with individuals at risk of getting involved in crime, and with communities to help prevent crime. In 1999 it changed its name to ‘Nacro’ usually described as ‘Nacro, the crime reduction charity’, to better reflect the whole work of the charity—around 50 per cent of its activity concerns the resettlement of offenders, 45 per cent concerns crime prevention, and 5 per cent concerns criminal justice reform. The resettlement of prisoners and ex‐offenders is still central to its work and vision of how to make society safer but it also offers services across the spectrum of crime reduction—from youth activity and parenting projects to helping develop and deliver initiatives to tackle crime.
