About Achieve North West Connect:

Achieve North West Connect (ANWC) is delivering NOMS CFO’s ‘Services to improve the employability of disadvantaged ex-offenders in the North West’. Funding is provided jointly through HMPPS CFO and the European Social Fund (ESF).

Delivery of the service is focused around the CFO case management model; offenders are assigned a Case Manager who works with them throughout their journey to employment, working in parallel with offender managers/responsible officers who manage their offending behaviour. The project is voluntary but it targets ‘hard to reach’ offenders who require additional support to get them ready for work.
