Abstract

This report presents and discusses the findings of an evaluation of an arts-based mentoring scheme that aims to prolong and enhance crime desistance through providing former prisoners with opportunities to continue engaging with the arts after release. The evaluation focused both on the implementation and effectiveness of the scheme as the former influenced the latter. Different yet complementary research techniques (observation of mentoring sessions, interviews with mentors and mentees, analysis of mentor reports, and survey-based quasi-experimental design incorporating control groups) were employed to enhance the validity of the data and improve their interpretation.
