Peer-support and volunteer groups play an invaluable role in supporting an offender's rehabilitation efforts. They also help facilitate the offender's re-entry into society, helping them to break away from their criminal lifestyle.

According to research on the benefits of befriending, many individuals in the community who are excluded in one way or another from participation in social and community life, can be supported through befriending services provided by voluntary agencies to become more involved and integrated in society.

The Friends Engaging and Support Scheme (FRENS) seeks to link up selected offenders CJC's befrienders, who will provide support to the offenders, with a view to facilitating rehabilitation and reintegration of the offenders
