New infographic summarises findings from 140 evaluations by the Justice Data Lab of which interventions are the most successful in reducing reoffending.

The Justice Data Lab

The reform and part-privatisation of the probation service under the Transforming Rehabilitation programme sharpened government interest in what works in tackling reoffending. New private probation providers known as Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) are also particularly keen to know what works since their contracts are (partly) based on a payment by results model which links payment to the reduction of local reoffending rates.

The main Ministry of Justice initiative in this area was the introduction of the Justice Data Lab (JDL) in April 2013 which was set up to encourage analysis of the effectiveness of reoffending initiatives.

The JDL has now (January 2017) published its analysis of 140 different initiatives and I summarise the overall findings in the infographic below:
