In June, I wrote a blog about a ‘Guide to Desistance’ that I was writing. The blog elicited a great response, with many people sharing their experiences and ideas, so thank you to all who contributed. These ideas really helped to inform the guide, especially the last section entitled ‘Practical next steps.’ Clinks have now published ‘Introducing Desistance: A Guide for Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector Organisations’. The guide aims to:
- Provide an accessible summary of the key themes in the desistance literature;
- Explore how VCSE Sector organisations can use the theory to demonstrate the success of their work to policy makers, funders, commissioners and prime providers;
- Give examples of practical steps VCSE Sector organisations can take to support their service users further, informed by desistance theory.
- Has the guide inspired you to do anything differently? If so, how?
- How do you think learning about desistance theory could be shared between organisations?
