COSA: reintegration of sex offenders

Reclassering Nederland

WHAT IS COSA? No new victims! COSA focuses on the reintegration of sex offenders who are supervised by the probation service. The main goal: 'no new victims'. Volunteers and professionals are committed to this together. Resocialization & control: Social isolation increases the chance that perpetrators will repeat themselves. COSA volunteers and professionals are working to break through that isolation. Volunteers support him in his reintegration into society by undertaking social activities and having conversations, but they are also trained to identify risky behavior at an early stage and to discuss it. They inform the professionals about this, who can intervene where necessary. Volunteers & professionals: Three to five volunteers guide one participant (the inner circle). A professional coordinator from the Netherlands Probation Service supervises the volunteers. In addition, there is support from a group of other professionals (the outer circle), including a probation officer, a community police officer and a therapist. The probation and after-care coordinator ensures the connection between the two circles. COSA is a fascinating task at the interface of people, crime and society. Volunteers are selected on the basis of an intake. They can then count on a thorough mandatory two-day training in advance and they are coached by the coordinator during deployment. No specific prior education or background is required. Above all, we ask our volunteers to participate in a circle as a person and themselves. You are cordially invited to register. We take good care of our volunteers. We work throughout the Northern Netherlands, but you decide in which area and on which days/parts of the day/times you want to be deployed. If you have any questions regarding this vacancy, you can always contact us.
