Unlocking value: The economic benefit of the arts in criminal justice

A new report published by NPC, by Hanna Johnson, Sarah Keen & David Pritchard. The criminal justice sector in particular is often targets-driven, and arts charities working with prisoners and ex-offenders are under increasing pressure to provide evidence of their impact. This report looks at three charities using art to work with prisoners and ex-offenders: Clean Break, Only Connect and Unitas. It calculates the money these charities' work saves the criminal justice system, putting forward the economic case for investment in arts charities.
