Millwall Community Trust seeking DIVERT Custody Intervention Coach

Apply now!

9 February 2021

Millwall Community Trust - in association with Lewisham Police Station and The New Era Foundation - is seeking a DIVERT Custody Intervention Coach.

DIVERT is a custody intervention programme which is designed to reduce reoffending and has been funded by the Violence Reduction Unit (VRU).

It is delivered in Lewisham Police Station custody suite by The New Era Foundation and Millwall Community Trust and it aims to DIVERT young adults between 18-25 away from crime.

The role of a Custody Intervention Coach is based mainly in a police custody suite. The CIC will be working on a daily basis, engaging with detainees and various members of the police family. The CIC will remain totally independent from the police investigation whilst delivering this new and innovative intervention programme.

It will be the CIC’s responsibility to successfully engage detainees in order to assess their motivation to make positive change and to start an intervention plan to prevent them from re-offending. This process will begin whilst the detainee is in police custody but will continue outside of the custody environment.
