ADR UK Funding Opportunity

Administrative Data Research UK  are accepting applications for 12-month Research Fellowships to conduct analysis using the newly available probation and criminal justice system linked data to improve understanding of experiences of the criminal justice system.

The probation and criminal justice system Research Fellowship is being launched in partnership with the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Together, they invite applications for Research Fellows to conduct research and analysis that aims to protect the public from harm, reduce rates of reoffending and improve life chances.

ADR UK will be providing funding for researchers to make use of this data for policy-relevant projects in the public interest and aligned with Ministry of Justice: Areas of Research Interest 2020.  Grant funding is available up to £130,000.

About the data
The new Data First ‘probation dataset’ is the most recent Data First product to be shared with the Office for National Statistics Secure Research Service. It contains information on service users (offenders), offences, disposals, community order requirements, license conditions and post sentence supervision requirements.

Access to the data will be available from ONS approved safe settings which includes SafePods.
