MISSION STATEMENT
Impact Resources develop forward thinking hard hitting crime prevention resource materials with prisoners, ex offenders and victims. Developed for organisations working with young people and adults, they are ideal for both early intervention and intensive targeted work with both individuals and groups. They are also designed to engage the most challenging and resistant learners, and be simple to use and evaluate from a facilitator's perspective.

Our resources are especially tailored to:
  • "These resources are very good tools to engage young people into positive sessions. The videos feature many of the situations our young people encounter or are in danger of being exposed to and to hear real life prisoners tell the negative side of their stories helps dismiss some of the glamorous images our young people believe to be associated with crime. The versatility of the resource also enables you to be able to tailor a programme to meet the needs of an individual young person. The resource is also beneficial as a preventative measure for young people who are low level offenders also for young people who have been released from custody, to act as a deterrent from entering the adult prison system." J. Woods – LIVERPOOL YOT

  • "This is the best resource we have ever used" J. Lawler (MANCHESTER YOT)

  • ";My staff team are very excited about these resources. One of the best things about them is that they have helped develop the teams knowledge base and staff have learned as much as the young people" Mike McCarthy - Newport YOT Manager

  • "My staff have stated that they love this resource mainly due to its excellent content however they liked it as it was easy to deliver and they could easily adapt it to any audience. We have even used some of it in our presentations to professionals. We should be using it in schools this year. In conclusion, an excellent resource." RONNY TUCKER - SHEFFIELD YOT

  • "We have found the programme very beneficial in addressing violent offending and the simple and clear structure/design of the programme makes it easy to understand and has been successful in engaging young people". ANITA, NAGHA - DERBY YOT

  • "I have been using Impact Resources – ‘Prisoners Preventing Offending’, as part of my Victim Awareness course here at HMP Wolds. I use the DVD ‘Crying Every Day (Families Perspective)’ as a way of showing the impact that crime has on families. When I show the DVD as part of the ‘Reaction to Crime’ module of the course there is a clear and visible awareness of their actions. For some of the offenders this is the first time that they have been made aware of the effect of their actions and it is a lesson that stays with them and is evident in their assignments."
