Testimonial

Russell has worked as a consultant for RAPt for over five years on a wide range of projects. He has detailed knowledge of the world of drugs and crime and can be relied on to produce quick and accurate briefings which draw on the latest research as well as developments in the pipeline. We have used Russell to provide specialist input on a wide range of subjects and have always been pleased with the quality of his output.

Testimonial

If Russell covers something you know it's likely to be important, and have implications for policy and practice. His analysis of the crime and drug policy world always gets to the nub of the issues and provides a way of cutting through to the heart of what's important.

Testimonial

Russell’s explanations and summaries are always helpful and often more helpful to me than the original report. He provides me the basis of the subject with up-to-date, accurate, evidence-based information and critical analysis but always with compassion and understanding. It is a rare combination in these times. Although I have never met him, I remain his number one fan! Thank you Chris

Testimonial

Russell was the Evaluator on the project I led. I found him to be extremely useful as much more than someone 'marking my homework' which was the role I expected him to take. His experience helped guide me forward, avoid mistakes I might have made, and steady my nerves when I got rattled. An excellent person to have on the team

Testimonial

Russell is a canny analyst of all things in criminal justice reform. His helpful takes on policy development and his good use of digital media makes him one of the most useful people to know in the sector. His clear-eyed scrutiny of payment by results and the Transforming Rehabilitation reforms is particularly impressive.

Testimonial

Russell is a mine of information, he's my go to for anything criminal justice related and I often refer people to him and his work, which is always accurate and accessible - no mean feat given the ever-changing landscape. Not only is Russell an expert in his field, he's an approachable and helpful person too; making him a pleasure to work alongside.

Testimonial

No nonsense interpretation about PbR, huge respect for Russell’s unwavering determination to make a difference.

Testimonial

Russell has worked alongside DLNR, and before that Leicestershire and Rutland Probation Trust, on a number of research and evaluation projects. He has an extensive knowledge of the Criminal Justice and Drug Treatment Systems which means that his research is always insightful, useful and cuts to the heart of things. His engaging style means that service users, staff and stakeholders alike are responsive and that as a consequence, the end product is comprehensive and of high quality. Russell goes about his craft in a way that is both supportive, taking account of competing pressures on those he seeks to engage, and challenging through honest feedback and thought provoking conclusions. He always offers very helpful recommendations that strike the right balance between ambitious and practical. It is always a joy to work with Russell and I look forward to further opportunities to do so in the future.

Testimonial

Russell knows his way around the criminal justice system as well as anyone. He combines practical knowledge with a sharp intellect. But what is equally impressive is that his compassion shines through his work. From the day we met, Russell's advice has been invaluable; without it we would not be able to support some of our most important clients. I would (and do) recommend him without qualification.

His website is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the ever changing context of justice policy and practice.
