    Abstract

    This draft report is based on an empirical qualitative research study in a Welsh youth offending service conducted over the period 2017-2018. The study had two related aims:

    1. To explore the impact on local policy and practice of the implementation of a new assessment instrument, AssetPlus; and

    2. To explore how a desistance-informed model of practice had been developed.

    AssetPlus, it should be explained, was designed to promote and enhance desistance-informed practice. This is discussed in more detail in Section 2.

    The draft Report summarises the wider background and context within which the shift in assessment and practice emerged, outlines the methodology followed, identifies the main findings, and explores the possible implications for future practice.
