Impact through Evidence – Capturing data to prove best practices in reducing violence, crime and reoffending.

  • Support collection and consolidation of data across the sector
  • Develop and deliver research projects directed to sport and criminal justice
  • Develop and promote good practice resources and publications

Impact by Communicating – Clear and concise guidance about what does and doesn’t work

  • Advocating for what does and doesn’t work to key stakeholders
  • Through events, gatherings and stakeholder groups

Impact through Delivery – Building a nationwide portfolio of solutions supporting sport in criminal justice.
