Our Impact

What makes Amber special is our tailored approach that is hands-on and focusses on each young person’s strengths.

Working with Project Oracle, the children and youth evidence hub, we have developed our theory of change. Every young person that comes to Amber has their own individual plan but our programme of support and theory of change is based around young people focussing on 4 key areas of their lives: employability, independent living, health, mental-health and wellbeing, and personal development.

Ministry of Justice Data Lab

An evaluation of our work published in 2018 by the Ministry of Justice found that there is ‘significant evidence that the Amber intervention decreases the number of people who re-offend.’ The figures show that on average 46% of people with a similar profile to those that come to Amber will re-offend compared to 24% of those that have benefitted from Amber’s programme of support.

We are really pleased that Amber has been recognised by the Howard League for Penal Reform in their 2019 Awards. Amber was the winner in the category of Liaison and Diversion for our approach in dealing with homeless young people who have substance misuse issues, mental health problems or learning disabilities when they first came into contact with the criminal justice system.
