Who We Are

Group of staff discussing a case

Warwickshire and West Mercia Community Rehabilitation Company is one of the 21 Community and Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) across England and Wales.  We cover Warwickshire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Telford & Wrekin.

CRCs were formed as a result of the government's Transforming Rehabilitation programme which split the existing 35 Probation Trusts into two parts - a National Probation Service and 21 CRCs.  Warwickshire and West Mercia merged to become Warwickshire and West Mercia Community Rehabilitation Company (WWMCRC).

We are part of the criminal justice system and work in partnership with the National Probation Service, police, prisons and courts.  We also work with local authorities, health and voluntary sector organisations.

We work directly with offenders to tackle the causes of their offending behaviour and help them to stop re-offending.  Our aims are to:

  • Protect the public
  • Reduce reoffending
  • Ensure proper punishment of offenders in the community
  • Ensure that offenders are aware of the effects of crime on the victims and the public
  • Rehabilitate offenders
