This project facilitates and advance knowledge exchange in relation to desistance from crime and how 'offender' supervision in the community can best support it. The project involves the production of a documentary film and workshops to explore how we could get better at supporting desistance from crime. For details of current progress and outputs to date, see the project blog: http://blogs.iriss.org.uk/discoveringdesistance
The project is led by Fergus McNeill (University of Glasgow). Other partners are Stephen Farrall (University of Sheffield), Claire Lightowler (IRISS) and Shadd Maruna (Queen's University Belfast).
- Improved access to and awareness of research about the process of desistance from crime and supporting desistance
