Community Safety

Our secure and structured environment enables the close monitoring and supervision of our residents behaviour and compliance with any additional requirements to their stay, including Licence conditions. We achieve this by 24 hour staffing, double waking night cover, CCTV monitoring throughout the premises and grounds, random and regular drug and alcohol testing , curfews and a variety of additional conditions as necessary.

Adelaide House staff work in conjunction with The Probation Service and Merseyside Police, and play a significant role in contributing to the ongoing assessment and management of risk for all the residents we accommodate. This includes the Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) and Integrated Offender Management (IOM) process.
