Following on from the RSA’s Future Prison project, the New Futures Network aims to be a practical resource for prison leaders and those working in and around prisons as the reform agenda is implemented.
The RSA has designed, developed and tested this proposal with as broad a range of stakeholders as possible, and published a clear proposal for a new body.
Rather than being a provider of services or representing any particular group, the primary objective of the New Futures Network is to secure better rehabilitative outcomes for prisoners and their communities by:
- Acting as an informed and honest broker between prisons and all potential partners, local and national, in the private, public and voluntary sector;
- Driving new approaches to prison leadership and innovation;
- Providing a bridge between practice, development and policy;
- Improving the mechanisms for sharing evidence, experience and success across justice services.
