Key findings this month
The request is the first of a two-part study for the Community Interest Company GOALS UK, assessing the impact on young people of initial contact or light-touch support. The second part will analyse a larger group, the majority of whom will have completed a GOALS course, unlike this initial cohort.
The first analysis indicates an inconclusive result in the one-year proven re-offending rate.
Update on the Justice Data Lab service
The Justice Data Lab team have now brought the fourth quarter of 2013 re-offending data into the service. It is now possible for an organisation to submit information on the individuals it was working with during 2013, in addition to the years 2002 to 2012.
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, relevant Policy Advisers for reducing re-offending and rehabilitation policy, and relevant special advisors, press officers, and private secretaries.
The report is released by the Ministry of Justice and produced in accordance with arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
