Evaluation of the London Reducing Re-offending Programmes

What is the need?

The study was to evaluate three of the London Mayor’s reducing re-offending programmes ( ‘Specification 2’ targets male offenders between 15-19 years of age who are in custody or serving community sentences.  ‘Specification 3’ targets female offenders between 15-19 years of age who are in custody or serving community orders. ‘Specification 4’ targets 18-19 year old male and female offenders who are under the supervision of the probation service)  which were funded by a payment by results (PbR) model.

What are we doing?

The study includes a process evaluation, an impact evaluation (including reconviction analysis and ETE Outcomes), an economic evaluation and an evaluation of the effectiveness and advantages/disadvantages of the payment by results model.

PERU undertook face-to-face and telephone interviews with a range of young offenders, resettlement brokers, delivery partners and strategic partners. PERU also led on the analysis of the payment by results model.

What were the outcomes?

A report was produced for the London Criminal Justice Partnership (LCJP).

What are the timescales?

The evaluation took place between 2011 and 2012
