Key findings this month
One request is being published this month. The request is for Caritas Care, a charity which provides mentoring to offenders in order to help them overcome barriers to rehabilitation. This intervention takes place both in prisons and in the community throughout North-West England. The results indicate a non-significant impact on the main one-year proven reoffending rate and frequency. However, they do provide significant evidence that participants who reoffend do so sooner than non-participants.
The bulletin is produced and handled by the Ministry’s analytical professionals and production staff. Pre-release access of up to 24 hours is granted to the following persons: Ministry of Justice Secretary of State, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State - Minister for Prisons, Probation and Rehabilitation, Minister of State for Civil Justice (Lords Minister), Permanent Secretary, Director General of Strategy and Change, 7 policy advisers for reducing reoffending and rehabilitation policy, and 2 special advisors, 3 press officers, and 5 private secretaries.
The report is released by the Ministry of Justice and produced in accordance with arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
