We held workshops to explore the issues raised in the film between April – June 2012. The workshops took place in Glasgow, Belfast, London and Sheffield. The workshops focused on what already works well in terms of supporting the desistance process, and explores how we can build on this success.
The workshops involved people who have offended, current criminal justice service users, probation officers, criminal justice policy makers, researchers, family of people who have offended and a range of other people with different interests related to the issue of desistance.
