Overview

The Wise Group have commissioned the Fraser of Allander Institute to analyse the effectiveness of New Routes in reducing reoffending and reconviction in Scotland.

This research forms part of a 4-year partnership with the Wise Group, a social enterprise that aims to help people out of poverty through one-to-one mentoring schemes, offering holistic means for people to change their lives within justice, employment and energy.

The research will be separated into strands. A PhD programme within the University of Strathclyde's Economics Department will provide a granular analysis of outcomes for those who take part in the New Routes programme, both in terms of reconvictions and wider outcomes.
