Ministry of Justice reports a ‘statistically significant result’ from The Clink Charity training

New data analysis from a report conducted by the Justice Data Lab (JDL) and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in July 2019 provides evidence that prisoners participating in The Clink Charity’s innovative hospitality and horticulture training scheme in partnership with HMPPS reduces reoffending rates, with the report stating the charity has achieved a “statistically significant result”.  

The report is an extension of a previous analysis conducted in April 2018 and additionally includes the 2016 cohort. The report states “The overall result shows that those who took part in the programme were less likely to reoffend than those who did not.”
