Project Nova is a pilot model of an intervention to support veterans moving through the criminal justice system. This report evaluates the engagement and impact of Project Nova.
Project Nova is a pilot model in Norfolk and Suffolk of an intervention, to reach veterans at the earliest point of contact following their arrest. This evaluation of Project Nova provides an insight into the needs of veteran offenders at an early stage in the criminal justice pathway. It also helps the reader to understand whether these needs can be met shortly after arrest, and whether this has any impact on offending behaviour. This Report reflects on examples of best practice for working with this challenging and often hard to engage population.
