Case studies on cutting crime, improving community safety

Over the next three years, we will be producing 12 case studies which showcase best practice in the voluntary sector around reducing crime and offending, improving community safety and supporting victims. The first case study is of a housing provider in Hartlepool that supports people in recovery from substance use, community campus87; the second is a domestic violence perpetrator programme delivered in Newcastle by Barnardo’s; and the third is a study on organisations that support women involved in prostitution, one working in Stockton and the other in Tyneside, A Way Out/Changing Lives.


"Barefoot did a fantatsic job of our evaluation. In particular, their approach to working with our service users was very impressive. The evaluation has answered many of our questions, but also asked us more, which gives us a great opportunity for the future."

Jayne Butler, Manager, The Comfrey Project

"As an organisation we felt that Barefoot did an excellent job of listening and understanding the needs of our review... We were thrilled with the final report; as well as being a very good read, the presentation and quality was excellent."

Cath Carnaby, Manager, Women's Health Advice Centre
