Prisoners serving sentences under 12 months will be forced to undertake a period of rehabilitation upon release for the first time under proposed reforms revealed today.
As part of a "rehabilitation revolution", Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said short custodial sentences will include a period of rehab in a bid to curb reoffending.
Detailing the plans, Mr Grayling said:
What we do at the moment is send people out of prison with £46 in their pocket, and no support at all. No wonder we have such high levels of reoffending.
It is madness to carry on with the same old system and hope for a different result.
