The Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire Community Rehabilitation Company (BGSW CRC) provides rehabilitation and offender management services to help reduce reoffending and protect the public.
We work with low and medium-risk offenders, managing their community sentences and providing them with knowledge, skills and support to enable them to stop offending.
We also manage and support low and medium-risk offenders who are released from prison on licence, as well as offenders who are sentenced to less than 12 months in custody.
BGSW CRC is operated by Working Links.
Groups of offenders completing Community Payback activity through the Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire Community Rehabilitation Company (BGSW CRC) as part of their sentencing have collectively done over 215,000 hours of service to their local area in 2018.
People paying back for the crimes they had committed are helping to provide animals with safe spaces at two attractions in the South West.
Independent research has shone a light on the use of community hubs in probation following a six-month study into community hub activity being delivered by Working Links across Wales and the South West of England.
