New report evaluates impact of lived experience

31 Oct 2023
Ingeus commissioned independent expert, Russell Webster, to evaluate the impact of lived experience in its Justice services. The latest evaluation report examines how we have worked with people with lived experience of the criminal justice system, delivering support to them through activities such as peer mentoring and volunteering, and enabling them to successfully find paid work with employers within the social justice sector.

The report focuses on five key areas: an examination of Ingeus’ Justice division policy, practice and principles in relation to lived experience; a description of a range of lived experience activities we delivered in past and present programmes including as lead partner in the Reducing Reoffending Partnership, which supported more than 50,000 service users; an analysis of the outputs and outcomes of these activities; a consultation on the benefits and challenges of a commitment to lived experience with Ingeus Justice staff; and giving a voice to people with lived experience themselves.

A wide body of evidence presents the opportunities and challenges for using lived experience and the new report looks at how a variety of initiatives Ingeus has introduced since 2010 have impacted people in the criminal justice system, most recently with programmes including Commissioned Rehabilitative Services, CFO3 and CFO Activity Hubs.
