So from the directors to mentors its staff are trained and DBS checked along side yearly training in safeguarding. Its board, trustees and staff are committed to providing bespoke and tailored programmes, resources and educational opportunities for our communities. Growing Futures UK works with schools, learning providers and community groups.
Evidence-Based Justice Lab is a research group funded by UK Research and Innovation conducting work at the intersection of data science, psychology, and law, with a focus on the criminal justice system. It gathers data on various aspects of the criminal justice system (e.g. guilty pleas, jury decision-making, use of evidence) to examine how these aspects of the system are operating (or are likely to be operating) in practice. Evidence-Based Justice Lab does this through gathering qualitative and quantitative data both from real cases and from experimental work.
