Abstract First paragraph: With 42 places of supported accommodation, Grampian has a higher level of provision, relative to its crimeload, than any other region in Scotland. Three projects provide this accommodation. Two are residential hostels with 24-hour support cover, owned and managed by the Social Work authority (the equivalent of the Probation Office in England and Wales). The third is a dispersed model of supported accommodation in properties leased to and managed by the local office of Sacro, a voluntary organisation which provides services and support to offenders and ex-offenders throughout Scotland. Sacro leases properties from councils and locallybased housing associations. Most provision is concentrated in Aberdeen even though need arises throughout the region.
