Milton Keynes Justice Team

'Linking' people with an offending history into local services that meet their needs.

What we do

Based at Milton Keynes Probation Office, our Link Worker team provides assessment of people with an offending background who present at Milton Keynes Magistrates Court with complex needs, including individuals with mental health conditions. We help the court to make informed sentencing decisions and help people going through the justice system to reduce the likelihood of their re-offending.

Our aim is to 'link' people into local services that meet their needs, helping them to resolve housing issues, financial difficulties, mental health needs, addiction issues, relationship problems, among many others, with the ultimate aim of safely re-integrating them into society.

 

We can offer you support if:

  • You are aged 18 or older
  • You are currently going through criminal justice proceedings (court)
  • You are willing to work with us on your issues
  • You live in Milton Keynes

and you meet one or more of the below criteria:

  • You are currently leading a chaotic lifestyle, and are struggling to cope
  • You are worried about your accommodation
  • You are having difficulty engaging with other services
  • You have complex needs

 

Where to find us

Our link worker teams are co-located alongside probation staff in Thames Valley Probation office and Milton Keynes Magistrates court.
