The Power Of Interventions

Posted by Edwin Categories: Edwin's Blog Published August 19, 2011

I am increasingly convinced that the way to reduce prison populations is to invest in ‘interventions’ at every stage of the offending cycle. This includes a juvile receiving a caution to a proflic offender being supported by a trained mentor on release from prison. Unfortunately this risks being overlooked by criminal justice agencies, or the first to go due to budget cuts. What are your views?

Wider Impact has been delighted to be invited by the Groundwork Lancashire West & Wigan Trust to independently evaluate its performance in relation to the delivery of the Future Jobs Fund projects.
