Tenders are sought to undertake a process evaluation of the local implementation of Ballymun STRIVE Pilot Programme.
Ballymun STRIVE Programme is a designated, Opt-In Project (Integrated Offender Management Project) which is a joint agency response to crime between the Probation Service, an Garda Síochána and the Irish Prison Service in partnership with non-justice community/statutory organisations and groups.
Arising from concerns about serious offending and anti-social behaviour, in 2013 the Ballymun Local Drugs Taskforce, along with other relevant governmental agencies and organisations, began work on planning an Integrated Offender Management pilot project for the area of Ballymun. IOM seeks to bring various agencies together to tackle persistent offending (for a discussion of the IOM see a previous posting here). The resulting Ballymun STRIVE Programme is a 24-month pilot project aiming to implement the lessons learned from IOM elsewhere.
The closing date for tenders is Wednesday, 18 February 2015. For more information about the proposed research, please see here.
