New data analysis from a report conducted by the Justice Data Lab (JDL) and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in July 2019 provides evidence that prisoners participating in The Clink Charity’s innovative hospitality and horticulture training scheme in partnership with HMPPS reduces reoffending rates, with the report stating the charity has achieved a “statistically significant result”.
The report is an extension of a previous analysis conducted in April 2018 and additionally includes the 2016 cohort. The report states “The overall result shows that those who took part in the programme were less likely to reoffend than those who did not.”
The aggregate findings between 2009 and 2016 show that the Clink graduates had a 15% reoffending rate compared to the comparison group’s 22%. This is an improvement of a 7 percentage point difference or a 32% improvement and in the words of the Justice Data Lab “is a statistically significant result.”
We were delighted to learn that the results for Brixton in particular indicated a reoffending rate of 11% compared to the comparison group’s 32%. This is an improvement of a 21 percentage point difference or a 65.6% improvement.
Chris Moore, chief executive of The Clink Charity, commented, “The Clink Charity welcomes the findings of The Justice Data Lab (JDL) report into the effectiveness of The Clink integrated training programmes. This latest report is testament to the dedicated work by The Clink Charity in partnership with HMPPS, and clearly shows a reduction in reoffending rates.
We are delighted that these results find that The Clink has maintained its strong performance in reducing reoffending rates, and that the JDL identifies that prisoners’ who took part in the programme were less likely to reoffend than those who did not. These new results have again shown a statistically significant reduction in reoffending against comparative groups at a national level. Very few interventions have achieved such a positive outcome in a JDL analysis.”
The Clink offers more than just training, we provide a five-step integrated programme for our trainees that consist of not only the recruitment and training while they are in prison but also support, employment and mentoring upon release. All five elements are key to the reduction in reoffending as it is providing the graduates with the assistance they need to readjust back into society.
The Clink Charity is now in its tenth year of achieving stellar results delivering accredited City & Guilds training in prison and supporting Clink graduates into full time employment upon release, helping them reintegrate back into society.
H&C News would like to congratulate The Clink Charity on the results of the report from the Justice Data Lab and the Ministry of Justice.
We hope that the government takes note of these tangible results and invests in reducing reoffending. The government through funding of The Clink Charity could save the UK taxpayer considerable amounts of money, and the bigger cost from the effects of reoffending on the UK public. It seems from the results that there is no longer a debate to be had about the effectiveness and benefits, just the will to action.
