Process evaluation of the HMP Doncaster payment by results pilot: Phase 2 findings

Findings from phase two of the process evaluation.



This report presents findings from phase two of the process evaluation which explored the implementation of the Payment by Results (PbR) pilot offering ‘through the gate’ support to offenders released from Doncaster Prison. The aim of the pilot was to test the impact of a PbR model on reducing reconviction levels.

This report examines the prioritisation and monitoring of offenders; the handover process from custody to community support; community provision and partnership working. Findings are based on qualitative interviews conducted with key stakeholders in July and August 2013.

Lessons learnt may help inform the delivery of the Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) programme.
