Evaluation of the | Reducing Reoffending Change Fund - Research Findings

The independent evaluation of the Reducing Reoffending Change Fund (RRCF) assessed the extent to which the Public Social Partnership (PSP) model delivers effective mentoring services that reduce the risk of reoffending and support reintegration, and concluded that there is a strong case for the continuation and expansion of mentoring services.

Findings on resources

Resources were, broadly speaking, invested as planned and were generally sufficient. However, managers in lead organisations found that the time involved in setting up the services was considerably greater than they had anticipated; some services therefore took longer than planned to become fully operational.

The findings suggest that six months should be the minimum period of engagement for most mentees and many would benefit from a longer period.
