The 2012 Annual Report of IASIO was officially launched on 25th July 2013. The report revealed that the organisation has successfully assisted 6,749 former offenders to gain education, training, employment and resettlement supports since each of the services began. The results of the report launched by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence Mr. Alan Shatter TD were presented to Vivian Geiran, Director of The Probation Service and Michael Donnellan, Director General of the Irish Prison Service, at the launch held at the Distillery Building in Smithfield, Dublin.

Key highlights of the report include:

  • Between 2000-2012, 11,234 former offenders have engaged with IASIO services. Of that, 6,683 people have been placed in employment, education or training. In total, 11,311 placements have been made (some clients have multiple placements e.g. a training course placement and then a job placement).
  • To date, 10% of all clients have been female

IASIO Services have been found to have far reaching positive implications, not just for the client but also for his or her family, peer group, and for the wider community as a whole. The breadth of services covers every prison and the majority of counties in Ireland. To carry out this important work, IASIO employs 20 Training & Employment officers (TEOs) and 3 Resettlement Support Workers (RSW’s)
IASIO services are a sustainable means of assisting former offenders, supporting them to leave behind the cycle of crime and preventing recidivism. These services are essential to combat the issue of overcrowding and serve to save money in the long term by keeping people out of the prison system. Additionally, they play a vital role in making communities safer.
