Community Rehabilitation Company
The Cheshire and Greater Manchester Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) manage low and medium risk offenders in order to reduce their likelihood of re-offending and support their rehabilitation. Their role is to rigorously enforce community sentences, suspended sentence orders and prison licences while holding offenders to account for their actions.
Their ultimate aim is to protect communities across Cheshire and Greater Manchester from the impact of criminal behaviour by reducing re-offending, supervising court orders and prison licences and helping offenders to make beneficial changes to their lives.
CRC are also responsible for managing some offenders on their release from prison and supporting their re-integration into the community. If offenders do not comply with their sentence they can be returned to court and face stiff penalties, including prison. CRC are part of Purple Futures, an Interserve-led partnership. On average they annually supervise 10,750 offenders across Cheshire and Greater Manchester.
High risk offenders are supervised by the National Probation Service.
