Findings from phase two of the process evaluation.
This report presents findings from phase two of the process evaluation of the Payment by Results (PbR) pilot at Peterborough Prison. The pilot uses Social Impact Bond (SIB) investment to fund interventions to reduce reoffending among male offenders released from Peterborough Prison having served short sentences (less than 12 months).
Findings are based on interviews conducted with key stakeholders between June and October 2013. Lessons learnt may help inform the delivery of the Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) programme.
Appendices to this research (interview protocol, interviewees, ways in which the prison facilitated the One Service, and examples of partnerships developed by the One Service) are published as a separated document alongside this report.
Since the production of this report, the Ministry of Justice has confirmed that it is discussing adjustments to the Peterborough payment by results pilot with Social Finance in preparation for the implementation of Transforming Rehabilitation.
