Services for Growing Organisations
Penal Reform Solutions offers a range of services to promote Penal Reform in England and Wales, and internationally. Please contact PRS if you would like to discuss future collaboration. The following services are some examples, which are available to organisations. Bespoke consultancy work and training can be designed to meet specific organisational needs.
Reflective Practice Training
The aim of this training is to understand the purpose, benefit and practice of reflection, build team cohesion through reflection, consider a strategy of reflection and consider how we might encourage reflection in others. It is challenging, innovatively facilitated and feedback is gathered to capture its benefits and areas for improvement. This training features academic knowledge linked to reflection, practice based examples and is centred on relationships, making it relevant, interesting and informative.
Lean Implementation Projects
Lean thinking prioritises creating an organisation which strives for a quality and value-focused culture. Lean examines how the processes of an organisation can be streamlined in order to create greater effectiveness and efficiency. This consultancy service offers an organisation a greater insight into its processes of working and provides realistic solutions to effectively improve the quality of practice.
Research Strategy Services
Understanding the impact of any initiative is important for any organisation. PRS provides training to organisation in research methods, designing a meaningful research strategy and analysing data. Staff and service users are involved in the training, deliver the research with the support of PRS and analyse the data themselves, in order to build capacity within the organisation as well include a range of people in the solution. This has recently be implemented at HMP Guys Marsh in the form of a Violence Summit and Drug Strategy, leading to a rich insight into these complex issues. This service has been delivered to charities and prisons, to understand the impact of practice. This can be particularly important for organisations that rely on quality research to evidence impact for funding bodies.
