    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Criminal Justice Liaison and Diversion schemes (CJLDs) provide a means of addressing mental health and other vulnerabilities in people in contact with the criminal justice system, whilst integrating the work of mental health and police services. Little is understood of the challenges that face these services in terms of their capability to achieve interagency collaboration and respond innovatively to this rapidly changing practice environment.

AIMS:

1. To explore the quality and impact of CJLDs on interagency collaboration between mental health and police services.

To understand front line professionals’ perceptions of the impact of current collaborative relationships within current CJLD service provision and service user outcomes and to analyse service users’ perceptions of the impact of current collaborative relationships within current CJLD service provision on their experiences of service provision during and after custody.

2. To explore the relevance of researcher facilitated interventions in the generation of social innovations to deliver organisational change

The student is expected to explore the balance between practice and academic priorities in the research project design. The study`s theoretical framework draws on activity system theory, the concept of “wicked problems”, and participatory methods of organisational change.
