There is still not enough evidence that can prove sport does prevent offending and rehabilitate offenders.
This is why we have launched a Research and Evidence Positive Action Group in partnership with over 12 different Universities, policy makers and key partners from across the UK.
To help build a practitioners delivery framework, we have developed a sector wide Theory of Change. We are currently working on the second version which is being supported by academics and sport for development experts around the UK.
We have also created a training package and check out our articles to see how it is already helping members to effectively record their impact in using sport for the desistance from crime.
