Abstract

The article adopts a mixed method approach to evaluating sports and arts-based interventions within Secure Children’s Homes in England and Wales; an under-researched area of the criminal justice system. The research adopts the innovative Diamond9 model and semi-structured interviews to evaluate the study. This is the first time the model has been adopted within a Secure Children’s Home. The results provide an original insight into the voice of this currently underrepresented demographic of the Secure Estate, and highlight future approaches to evaluating rehabilitative models for this hard to reach group.Keywords: Dance interventions; Diamond9; Secure Children’s Homes; Sports interventions; Young People.
