Center for Social Rehabilitation and Integration of Juvenile Offenders
The Center was established in 2009 when the NGO Crime Prevention Fund - IGA won the Plovdiv Municipality's public procurement to implement the service, with the Center itself developing its full potential in 2010.
The project establishes a focal point for work with juvenile offenders on the territory of Bulgaria's second largest city and its vicinity. The center is the hub of cooperation of all relevant institutions in the region, providing programs, interventions, counseling and mediation for the juveniles in an integrated manner, based on modern risk and needs assessment tools. This is the first such service for juvenile offenders in Bulgaria.
Performance of the Center is measured on three distinct levels. First level is the performance of the staff. The second level measures the level of cooperation with the relevant partners. This is important because while independently managed, the Center relies a lot on its partners to receive clients. The third level is measurement of the effect of the services and interventions delivered. Part of the individual contracts signed with the clients' parents outlined a provision for follow up tracking of the particular juvenile in order to evaluate overall reduction in re-offending.
