Better integrated offender management

Richard Tomlins

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Provisionally we believe that Fry’s work on Springboard generated £16 of social
value for every £1 invested purely in its first year of operation However, this is
only part of the story.
The project staff have been busy recruiting a host of volunteers who are already providing additional value by supporting service users beyond the confines of the project into a sustainable ongoing life, the next stage of the women’s journey. These outcomes are being achieved through:
(i) Empowering women through support and guidance to make their own
decisions about their lives and make positive changes, for example a female
leaving a violent relationship.
(ii) Peer mentoring within group settings n Links developed with agencies for
ongoing long term support to prevent any relapse/crisis.

The study has added to Fry’s understanding of the ways in which the softer outcomes of self-belief and self-confidence contribute to the sustainability of the outcomes SWMPT specify.
Fry Housing Trust has now won the delivery of the Springboard contract for another two years with a option for a further 12 months.
