This paper outlines the key research findings on the effectiveness of the Kainos Community Challenge-to-Change programme (CtC). It is a hybrid programme using cognitive behavioural work in a therapeutic community setting within the prison. Our evaluation shows that CtC has been successful in improving both prison discipline prisons and significantly reducing 2-year post-release reconviction rates. We argue that it compares favourably with mainstream UK and international programmes, due to: CtC’s hybrid design; consistent input from dedicated staff; a relatively consistent selection process that targets medium to high risk offenders.
