Integrated Offender Management (IOM) is an inter-agency response to reducing crime and reoffending within local communities across England and Wales. In Lincolnshire, this was known locally as Assisting Rehabilitation Through Collaboration (ARC). In order to inform future operationalisation of IOM, the team conducted a mixed methods review of the existing service to establish what was working well, what was not working well and what needed to happen. Semi-structured interviews with 20 professionals highlighted complexity of need, particularly across housing and health, effectiveness and challenges of the ARC staffing and partnership model, external barriers to success, outcomes and impact, and suggestions for working differently. Quantitative analysis of data collated through ARC evidenced significant change in IOM nominals in accommodation, finances, drugs, relationships, physical health and volume of offending, with implications for long term impact. Following the review, the IOM model was re-launched in Lincolnshire with 3 core priorities around strategic direction, governance and performance/evaluation. Work is ongoing to support IOM with their continued development.
