Amey, as part of MTCnovo has today been announced as preferred bidder for London and Thames Valley contracts.

MTCnovo is a new venture between the third, public and private sector which has been established to provide rehabilitation and offender management services.

The contract will see MTCnovo become a partner in the wider transformation of the offender rehabilitation system in England and Wales. MTCnovo will support a step change in the way offenders are supported and rehabilitated; and will ensure that for the first time, prisoners with sentences of less than 12 months will start to prepare for their reintegration back into society from the day they are imprisoned. Harnessing the professionalism and expertise of the workforce, MTCnovo will establish relationships with all offenders on the day they enter prison, making sure their time is spent productively on activities, education, and health programmes that will help to reduce the chance of reoffending again on release.

MTCnovo will also introduce an offender cohort model for the first time, which will see groups of offenders – women, 18-25 year olds, working age males, older males and those with a chronic illness, mental illness or intellectual disabilities – identified before services are tailored around the needs of each cohort.
