The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) is seeking information via a short survey to develop the New Futures Network (NFN). RSA has set up the NFN with the intention of it being a practical resource for prison leaders and those working in and around prisons as the reform agenda is implemented. Rather than being a provider of services or representing any particular group, its primary objective is to secure better rehabilitative outcomes for prisoners and their communities through:
- Acting as an informed and honest broker between prisons and potential external partners;
- Driving new approaches to prison leadership and innovation;
- Providing a bridge between practice development and policy.
- Developing mechanisms for sharing impact, outcomes and learning across justice services.
The proposal will be designed and tested with a broad a range of stakeholders and NFN will publish a clear proposal for a new body in early summer 2017.
