Swansea Service Evaluation Team (SSET)

There is substantial research evidence that criminal justice practices that are rooted in social justice principles can provide opportunities for people undertaking court orders to access services that promote social inclusion and full citizenship.

The Swansea Service Evaluation Team’s objective is to conduct transformational social science research which identifies and promotes these practices in Criminal Justice services across Wales and international jurisdictions.
