Himmat Probation Evaluation Report
The Himmat Project provides a comprehensive and unique range of consultancy and cultural interpretation services to the Criminal Justice agencies operating in West Yorkshire. With our experience in this field it means we can effectively engage with offenders from the Asian communities and address the mindset of offending.
This is achieved by:
Co-working and consultancy with probation staff on complex, high-risk cases, providing a cultural and religious perspective to offending throughout all stages of probation intervention.
Ensuring that South Asian service users have equal access to justice and are not constrained by others’ lack of understanding of their culture, faith or language, or by their own lack of understanding of the criminal justice system.
Working in line with National Probation Service guidelines in protecting the public and managing risk through appropriate case management.
