Ministry of Justice releases impressive reoffending results from first cohort of Catch22's programme in HMP Doncaster.
08 August 2014
Catch22 is proud to celebrate impressive results from the first year of its Offender Management and Rehabilitation contract in HMP and YOI Doncaster.
On 7 August, the Ministry of Justice published the results of the first cohort year from Catch22’s Offender Management and Rehabilitation contract in HMP YOI Doncaster. Our approach at Doncaster has seen the rate of offenders being convicted of a further offence at court drop by 5.7 percentage points against the 2009 baseline for the prison. What is particularly significant is the reduction of 8.4 percentage points in the re-offending of offenders sentenced to less than 12 months.
As the world’s first reducing re-offending pilot based on a binary Payment by Results (PBR) contract, the pilot has represented a significant opportunity for us to demonstrate our approach and build on our belief in the impact that building high quality, sustained relationships can have on supporting offenders to turn their lives around.
During the two years Catch22 has operated in Doncaster we have formed a strong team possessing a range of skills and experience who all share a commitment to transforming lives and rehabilitating offenders.
Chris Wright, Chief Executive, Catch22 said:
‘The PBR pilot is an ambitious and innovative programme and we have worked hard to achieve the target for reduced reoffending rates in Doncaster.
‘Catch22 has relished the opportunity to work on this ground-breaking project and we hope to continue working with our partners and with the Government to design and deliver services that help reduce reoffending in the long-term.’
