Community Needs Analysis for Prisoner and Former Prisoners
This Community Needs Analysis (CNA) is a pilot study carried out by College Connect, in collaboration with the Pathways Centre for Prisoners and Former Prisoners. The report was carried out from April to October 2019. Participative, experiential, and creative methods were used to explore the views and insights of 34 participants on the factors that may either encourage or discourage participation or progression in higher education. The research generates key insights on the barriers experienced by this group as well as highlighting areas where action is required.
