Welcome to Cumbria and Lancashire CRC

Cumbria and Lancashire Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) is a new organisation made up of the former Cumbria Probation Trust and Lancashire Probation Trust.
Our purpose is to protect the public by delivering effective offender management and rehabilitation services to low and medium risk offenders who are serving community sentences or have been released from prison on licence.
Our vision is to ‘Create a positive future’ for the people we work with such as offenders, victims and their families, communities, our partners and our employees.We do this by:
  • Managing Risk
  • Changing Lives
  • Improving Communities 

We supervise around 5,400 offenders at any one time and we give other support and advice to help them stop offending, get a job or access training and education, find accommodation, sort out debts and benefits, overcome drug or alcohol addiction and plan for their future. To do this, we work closely with a range of partner agencies such as the police, prison service, local authorities, the health service and a range of other community-based organisations.

We employ around 200 staff across at network of 10 offices throughout Cumbria and Lancashire.

We are one of 21 Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) in England and Wales.

The Ministry of Justice has overall responsibility for the CRCs and is also responsible for the courts and prisons.

No Win No Fee

When getting access to justice, especially when it comes to personal injury and accident claims, make sure to use no win no fee lawyers so that you aren't risking your hard earned cash on expensive legal costs. Selecting a good solicitor is very important so ensure to do plenty of research before selecting one and take into account the specific area of law that the firm specialises in - ie are they experts in no win no fee style accident claims? Or are they just a regular solicitors office with no specialism in these kinds of claims. Doing your research early will pay off in the long run.
