Produced by the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice, the new resource includes key messages from the original study and aims to make the research more accessible to young people.
The original research, funded by The Robertson Trust and Scottish Prison Service, assessed a range of developments implemented by HMYOI Polmont that worked directly with young men who had experienced trauma, bereavement and loss, and aimed to:
- Generate new learning to further knowledge and understanding about the trauma, bereavement and loss needs of young people involved in offending
- Increase understanding about effective interventions by monitoring the experience and impact of the Here & Now service and the staff awareness training
- To document and describe the OLWO approach, processes and outcomes to inform SPS service delivery and any formal commissioning and tendering processes in the future.
