DTVCRC Extraordinary Delivery Model

DTVCRC have looked at how best to maintain our Keyworker responsibilities whilst protecting staff, and playing our part to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

As a result, we are moving to an exceptional delivery model from week commencing 30 March 2020. The model has been approved for use by Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service.

Remote working

The vast majority of our contacts with our participants in the community will be remote using telephone.  These will be agreed on a case by case basis.

Work continues to prioritise essential meetings.  Internal meetings will be by use of technology and teleconferencing and we will contribute to external meetings via telephone conference.

All face to face training has been cancelled.

Face to Face Appointments

DTVCRC operates from two District Centres.  Participants who are to be seen face to face, will be seen at the district centres by their Responsible Officer. Where this is not possible, face to face contact may need to be undertaken via a ‘doorstep’ visit.  Other than this, home visits will not to be undertaken.

Office appointments

For a very limited number of participants, those without access to a phone and licence inductions, we are keeping our District Centres open to participants with reduced opening hours:
