New Leaf Consultations Research & Policy

New Leaf was born out of consultation with over 400 people who were serving sentences in the community. Our aim is to hear, value and amplify the voices of communities in custody and beyond.

This includes a focus on topics such as bullying issues, as well as creating a “Leaders with Lived Experience” forum around prison education. More recently we have conducted early days in custody inspections with the female estate.

We feed into national consultations with our findings to shape policy and practise for the better.
