In 2017 HMDT Music commissioned Dr Anthony Gunter (Principal Lecturer in Criminology at UEL) to carry out an academic evaluation of our ONE SPIRIT project in its 10th year, as it engaged and worked with 48 young offenders across HMYOIs Feltham and Cookham Wood. The report covers a period of 12 months from September 2017 to August 2018 and is an ethnographic study that focuses qualitatively and quantitatively on the project’s ethos, processes and outcomes as evidenced by the data and feedback collected from participants and staff involved.

The report highlights and drills down into key elements of the project and helps to validate why One Spirit is such a successful custodial and resettlement project for young offenders.
