Rehabilitation Activity Requirements
A Rehabilitation Activity Requirement (RAR) is an intervention that has been designed to address a range of different types of behaviours and levels of offender risks. These types of offending behaviour are not covered by an accredited programme or similar intervention.
Our RARs help to:
- protect the public and reduce reoffending
- enable individuals to acquire new skills and attributes
- enable interventions to be introduced in a coordinated way making them more likely to succeed
- deliver a more flexible, tailored approach which takes account of the varied needs of each individual.
RAR’s help individuals to:
- develop communication and problem solving skills in relationships
- understand the impacts alcohol and substance misuse can have on their life
- recognise how to improve their parenting skills
- maintain and deal with the emotional distress issues that influence their offending
The RAR’s also support women offenders by helping them to understand how their anti-social behaviour may have been impacted by their personal experiences. They can develop new skills such as problem solving and learn how to achieve positive change in their lives.
