Short listed for the Policing and Crime award 2016!

The Howard League believes that projects which help to keep people out of the criminal justice system, by providing alternative, proportionate, effective and targeted interventions will reduce the risk of reoffending.

These annual awards celebrate best practice in diversionary work and champion work in the community that challenges and changes people for the better – be it with children; women; mental health programmes or restorative justice.
