About 'Report: Foundations and Futures - New Bridges Befriending Service Evaluation'

New Bridges Befriending Service – Evaluation Report

This research, conducted by Sophie Rowe of Birmingham City University, found that befriending prisoners:

- Increased motivation to re-establish contacts with family and friends

- Improved self-esteem and confidence

- Gave an opportunity to challenge their thinking about criminal behaviour

- Increased positive thinking about their current and future lives

- Helped to create a more positive sense of personal identity

These outcomes indicate that long-term befriending of prisoners helps them to work towards successful re-integration into the community and reduce the likelihood of re- offending.
