Our approach: Whose crime is it anyway?
The recent rioting has thrown the spotlight on how crime is everyone’s problem. We are responding by using our years of experience in reducing crime.
Underpinning our work are four imperatives based on years of policy research and practical experience gained from our work on the ground with thousands of offenders in hundreds of communities across England and Wales.
They show the importance of:
1 getting in early with troubled young people
2 challenging attitudes - both the attitudes of offenders and those of the wider community
3 putting the notion of ‘giving back’ at the core of measures to make communities safer
4 concentrating on outcomes in relation to reducing reoffending, and getting offenders ready to live and work in their communities.
