Beyond Youth Custody launches case studies listings to showcase positive practice and young people’s stories

2 May 2014

The Beyond Youth Custody Programme launches a case studies website area today. This has been developed to fulfil a key strand of our research and evaluation work. The case studies have been designed and developed to highlight two key areas:

  • Practice case studies – These focus on specific areas of practice, and are designed to help us understand effective approaches and to identify factors which can impede, or help to facilitate, good practice
  • Individual case studies – These focus on specific project participants and their individual pathways, and on connections between these pathways and different sets of resettlement outcomes.

Beyond Youth Custody Programme Manager Pippa Goodfellow said:

“The formulation of case studies is a key element of our work, helping us to apply our learning into practical guidance for professionals working with young people through their journey from custody to community. We hope that you will find the examples of positive practice useful for working with young people in a resettlement context.

The next piece of work that the programme will be looking into is the resettlement of young women and girls. We are looking for projects to provide us with examples of innovative practice, so if you have a case study from your project that you think highlights effective practice in this area, then please get in touch with us by emailing“.
