A Commissioners Guide to Arts in Criminal Justice Settings

Kerry Reidy Comments

The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance have put together a guide that provides those people with responsibility for supporting the education, health, well-being and resttlement of individuals within the criminal justice system with clear information on the role arts can play in supporting their objectives. Geese are included the Arts, Culture and Innovation in Criminal Justice Settings Guide for Commissioners, with a case study of our recent NOMS-commissioned work with prisoners vulnerable to self-harm and suicide.

Drawing on further case studies and research evidence, the guide aims to provide practical information and ideas for arts interventions and details of how to identify providers and activities that best match the needs of the commissioning organisation.
