Farmer Review

Tuesday, November 1st 2016 - RECOOP/BCHA

Lord Farmer, working in partnership with Clinks, has been commissioned to chair an independent review to investigate how supporting men in prison in England and Wales to engage with their families can reduce reoffending and assist in addressing intergenerational crime.

Whilst the report will focus mainly on the outcomes for the majority male prison population, it will also look at what works well for women in prison and their families.

In addition, the review will look at what works to help those men who do not have any family connections, such as those whom were previously in the care system, or who have lost contact with family because of going to prison or due to the nature of their offences.

The review will report in early 2017 and its findings will be given to the Ministry of Justice.

With our experience and expertise of working both within prisons and in the community, RECOOP and BCHA have recently submitted their evidence, which can be read here.
