Abstract

This article gives an account of an evaluation of a programme for racially motivated offenders designed and run by probation staff in Merseyside. Originally a response to the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act, the programme was adapted in response to changed patterns of migration and racist hostility. A groupwork version of the programme was started in 2008, and this became a particular focus of the evaluation. Offenders who participated in both individual and group versions generally reported positive learning experiences, and appreciated the style and knowledge of the facilitators. The article argues that the content and delivery of the programme are in line with what research suggests should be helpful practice with this group of offenders, and that the programme is a positive example of skilled, creative practice.
