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 who work in partnership with Innovation Wessex, a mutual community interest company made up of former Probation Trust workers.
