An analysis of the long-term and wider impact of the Good Vibrations Project.

This report, commissioned from Birmingham City University’s Centre for Applied Criminology, looked at the impact of taking part in Good Vibrations on participants 12-18 months on, assessing the long-term institutional impact of participating and measuring whether any long-term impact is sustained as offenders leave prison. Participants’ attitudes, emotions, and behaviours were measured through interviews, adjudication reports and OASys records, and interviews with prison staff.
