Summary This review of case management models to use in the public sector to support people with complex needs was commissioned by the Ministry of Justice. The study aimed to assess the applicability of case management models to the civil, criminal and justice settings and its potential to deliver improved outcomes for vulnerable groups within these settings. Four case management models were identified in the review: brokerage model; intensive case management; assertive community treatment; and strengths model. The strengths and limitations of each model were examined and implications for applying the different models in the justice sector were discussed.
