Meaning ‘Future’ in Welsh, Dyfodol reaches people across South Wales and Gwent who’ve come into contact with the Criminal Justice Service due to alcohol or substance misuse. We provide holistic interventions that help steer people away from offending or repeated cycles of offending.
Our G4S Community colleagues work alongside our consortium partners to deliver a nurturing, wraparound service that aims to build safer, and much improved lives. Once we’ve identified a person’s individual needs, we open up a range of options for them to engage with, from health and wellbeing targeted interventions to education, training and creative opportunities.
Dyfodol is commissioned by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (South Wales) and is run as a consortium with partner organisations Kaleidoscope and Adferiad Recovery. G4S Community are the lead partner specialising in the Criminal Justice element of support.
Together we work to ensure individuals coming into the Dyfodol service receive the highest standard of care, giving them the best chance of moving away from the Criminal Justice Service and onto a better life.
