Key findings this month
One request is being published this month:
The request is for the charity Working Chance, who support female offenders into paid and voluntary work with mainstream employers. This analysis focuses on those who found employment after receiving the recruitment service provided by Working Chance. This analysis indicates that there is currently insufficient evidence at this stage to draw a conclusion about the impact of finding employment through the recruitment service offered by Working Chance has on the 1 year proven reoffending rate. However, there was a statistically significant improvement in the frequency of reoffending.
