Organisations working collaboratively to develop a Liaison and Diversion Service across south east and south west Hampshire (Portsmouth and Southampton Court Areas). The service is intended to provide appropriate advice and diversion of offenders into appropriate care, taking account of mental health issues. The service will provide advice to offenders of all ages and vulnerabilities and will be available 24/7 (with core hours being 12 per day). The project is part of the second wave of the national deployment of Liaison and Diversion Services.

Outcome

Intended outcome:  Offenders with mental health issues receive the appropriate care and ensure that the criminal justice system is aware of an offender's mental health issues.
