This report presents the findings from an exploratory study undertaken by the Policy Evaluation and Research Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and the Advice Services Alliance (ASA).

The aim of the study was to explore the efficacy of advice services for prisoners, specifically:

  • the knowledge gap in the evidence base;
  • research required to address this.
  • funding/business/policy models to support such research.

This exploratory study was supported by a small grant from the Manchester Metropolitan University Business Engagement Seed Fund Scheme and received in-kind support from PERU and the ASA.
