It has been demonstrated that prisoners working on our projects learn skills and teamwork, which in turn leads to increased self-confidence and self respect. This type of project also heightens prisoner’s awareness of the needs of others, of the desperate poverty in the world, and the change to a person’s life that a wheelchair can bring. We believe that this in turn leads to a better chance of an offender returning to the outside world as a better adjusted person and a person less likely to re-offend.

The original charity established by Margaret Carey, the Inside Out Trust, commissioned ARCS to do a longitudinal (over a period of time) research project into the impact of prison workshops with a restorative justice focus. We believe this research is still relevant today, and demonstrates some of the benefits of our projects in prisons.
