Sports-based programmes in criminal justice: your views needed
Professor Rosie Meek, author of last year’s landmark Sporting Chance independent review of sport in justice is launching a new project and needs the help of the Alliance of Sport’s Community of Practice.
Prof Meek (pictured above) is asking for the views and observations of people representing, or connected to, sports-based programmes operating with the criminal justice system.
She explains: “I am currently supporting the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in developing a new resolution on the integration of sport into youth crime prevention and criminal justice strategies.
“As part of this project I have designed an online consultation to gather the views and good practice examples of a wide range of organisations working in this sector. Collectively, we have the opportunity to help shape international policy and good practice guidelines in the important but often overlooked topic of sport in crime prevention and reduction.
“Responses are confidential and any questions you don’t wish to or are unable to answer can be skipped. Organisations may prefer to nominate one individual to collate and submit the response on behalf of the organisation.
“You’ll also have the opportunity to highlight good practice examples or case studies, and share evaluation findings you’d like me to celebrate on your behalf.
“Please ensure you have submitted your responses by October 31st in order to be included in this international consultation. Thank you in advance for your participation and please do let me know if you have any questions.”
The consultation can be accessed here.
