Key findings this month
One request is being published this month. The request is for Switchback’s rehabilitation programme. Switchback is a London-based through-the-gate rehabilitation programme that aims to support young adult males stick to their commitment to live life differently after release from prison.
The overall results were not statistically significant and more people would need to become eligible for analysis in order to determine the direction in which the intervention affects the 1 year proven reoffending rate, the frequency of re-offending and the time taken to re-offend, but this should not be taken to mean that the programme fails to affect it.
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 and Probation, Permanent Secretary, Director General of Criminal and Justice, Chief Financial Officer, 8 Policy and Analytical Advisers for reducing re-offending and rehabilitation policy, 2 special advisors, 2 press officers and 3 private secretaries.
The report is released by the Ministry of Justice and produced in accordance with arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
