Title: Drug System Change Pilot Scheme (DSCPs)
Summary: The Drug System Change Pilots (DSCPs) aimed to explore new approaches to drug treatment and the broader social support needs of drug users in the community, in prison and drug-using offenders leaving prison. The pilots explored whether allowing greater freedom and flexibility at a local level would encourage partnership working and the innovative use of local resources to meet the needs of drug users and their communities. After a competitive procurement process, seven areas were selected to carry out the DSCPs with each pilot adopting different aims and approaches to system change. Pilot areas were granted funding flexibilities to explore innovative new approaches. Three broad approaches to changing system structures were taken by the pilots: single provider systems, consortium based systems and improving partnership arrangements. Four broad approaches to tackling continuity of care were adopted: integrated community criminal justice system and prison drug treatment teams, an independent case manager approach, embedding CJS teams within community drug treatment services and linking roles. To create a more personalised treatment system, either a self-directed support approach, or a single point of assessment approach, was adopted. Pilot sites also took the opportunity to focus their treatment provision on recovery and reintegration. Outcomes used to evaluate the impact of the DSCPs were the proportion of service users in effective treatment and the proportion of service users who successfully completed treatment. The evaluation found, in two pilot sites defined as whole system pilots as they aimed to affect change across the whole treatment system, a positive impact in the number of service users in effective treatment when compared to comparison areas. Although there were insignificant results for two sites in terms of the proportion of service users who successfully completed treatment, the authors note that the full impact of the pilots is unlikely to be felt for some time. Four pilots focused on improving drug treatment provision for those within the CJS exclusively. Results showed that three of these sites had statistically significant negative trends in terms of the proportion in effective treatment and a longer-term follow-up may be required to determine if the trends will persist. There was no measurable impact in successful completions for three areas and a negative impact in one site. >>

Title: The Transitional Support Scheme
Summary: The evaluation was conducted pre 2012 so information presented here refers to pre April 2012. The Transitional Support Scheme, funded by the Welsh Government, is a mentoring scheme for short-term (less than 12 months) male and female prisoners in Wales with substance misuse problems. The scheme aims to provide 'through-the-gate' support to aid in the transition from prison to the community and was run by G4S Justice Services and CAIS/Nacro Cymru. In 2008-09, an evaluation was conducted to assess the quality and impact of the scheme and the effectiveness of its organisational processes and practices. The evaluation concluded that the scheme had developed a very effective model and the staff on the scheme had become highly experienced, skilled and well connected. Stakeholders also provided positive feedback. The help that prisoners recevied in their transition in the first few days and weeks after release from prison, was deemed to be the most important contribution. >>

Title: Projecto Crescer Mudando
Summary: The GAP (Cabinet for social and psychological support) appears through the project “Crescer Mudando” (to grow and to change), promoted by GATO and financed by IDT. This is a part of the “Eixo de Intervenção da Prevenção” (to intervene and to prevent programme) and it is a result of the diagnosis that was carried within the city of Faro, which includes the parishes of Sé, São Pedro and Montenegro. This project started on the 1st December 2008 and ended on the 30th November 2010. After an evaluation carried out by the team in IDT, the project was given another 2 years to function. The GAP intended to be an asset to the local community, from both social and psychological approaches, by promoting the development of individual social and personal competences which would allow children and teenagers to more effectively deal with risky behaviours, delinquency and social exclusion. The GAP also provided support to adults and families who were at risk and vulnerable from the social and psychological point of view. Thus, the goals were to effectively intervene in order to resolve or at least minimize problem situations encountered throughout the City , namely: petty thefts in social neighbourhoods (cars, stores, houses, wallets), absenteeism at school, drug and alcohol addiction, juvenile delinquency, violence at home, poverty, trafficking, criminality, juvenile prostitution (mainly male), and violence and risk behaviour in general. Our actions succeeded in putting the target population for this project in contact with healthy life style situations, which were unknown for the majority of them, and that further stimulated the use of the learned competences to build a more structured life for themselves. A project such as this, in order to succeed, has to be based on trust. Therefore, we developed a lot of field work, going door to door, letting people know about our goals and our willingness to help. It is true that the governmental entities that exist and have the mission to intervene do not have the necessary capacity to respond quickly, as they have a great number of cases to respond to. In the same manner, the existing IPSS do not have these types of actions on a regular basis. Our project, through GAP, was therefore a necessary and innovative one, especially in what concerns psychological support, and a number of different social and educational responses, all in one same project. Our project has been praised and recognized by a number of institutions, namely Algarve University, João de Deus High School, who have worked closely with us by offering to receive a number of trainees. Besides the team that will be mentioned on another point, we had several volunteers working on our project. >>
