In order to successfully deliver our fellowships, we work in partnership with a growing number of different organisations from both within and outside of, the criminal justice sector.
Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge
To successfully deliver our fellowships to the highest standard, we are proud to be working with our academic partners, Professor Gelsthorpe and the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge (ICUC).
The Institute was one of the first Criminology institutes in the UK and has exerted a strong influence on the development of the discipline of criminology ever since. The Institute's core academic staff are all leading researchers in their fields and the Institute has a worldwide reputation for excellence in both research and teaching.
We have been working with them since 2013.
The LankellyChase Foundation
We work in partnership with the LankellyChase Foundation to deliver up to two partnerships a year where the subject of the research relates to women or girls who are involved with the criminal justice system or at risk of becoming involved and who have multiple and complex needs.
The LankellyChase Foundation exists to bring about change that will transform the quality of life of people who face severe and multiple disadvantage. They focus particularly on the persistent clustering of social harms such as homelessness, substance misuse, mental and physical illness, extreme poverty, and violence and abuse. They employ a number of different methodologies, including grant making, special initiatives and commissioned research and policy analysis. They aim to work in a problem solving way, supporting or promoting action based on a robust analysis of both the problem and its underlying drivers. Their fundamental goal is to help shift the way that people on the extreme margins are valued by society, so that policy, public debate and practice are focused on people’s capabilities and humanity.
The Barrow Cadbury Trust
We are working in partnership with the Barrow Cadbury Trust to deliver one fellowship per year over three years (2017-2020) where we are looking for research proposals relating specifically to the treatment of young adult women (aged between 18 and 25), which may include those in transition between the youth and adult systems.
Barrow Cadbury is an independent, charitable foundation committed to bringing about a more just and equal society. Building on their Quaker heritage they seek long-term solutions by looking at root causes of inequality. The problems they address are complex so they frequently work in partnership with others; grant-holders, other trusts and foundations, local and national government, to identify solutions. They focus on a small number of distinct policy areas and seek to influence them by building evidence base, advocating for change and ensuring the voices of people affected by social injustices are heard in the debate. Much of their work is directed towards change at the national level: where they work locally this is almost always in Birmingham and the surrounding area.
The Probation Institute
We work together with the Probation Institute in recognition of our common purpose and aims to promote purposeful and effective probation services, sharing a commitment to the professional development and training of probation workers, including volunteers, supporting the use of effective, evidence informed practice; and, achieving better outcomes for those in the criminal justice system, whether as offenders or victims, supporting confidence in community justice and safer communities.
We both endorse an underpinning ethical approach to practice as set out in the Probation Institute’s Code of Ethics and The Griffins Society Objects, Vision/Mission and Values, and undertake that their joint efforts will be guided by the principles set out in these documents.
