    This evidence review provides an in-depth look at the issue of engaging people with convictions. Kevin Wong has been a prominent researcher in this area and has examined the issues of assessment, engagement and promoting desistance in both the probation service and voluntary sector organisations. The review covers a wide range of issues including: - Summarising the evidence base and guidance materials on ways to engage effectively with adults and young people with convictions - Setting this evidence base within the context of the research underpinning broader rehabilitative practice - Looking at the differences in effective engagement practice between the statutory and voluntary sectors - Discussing the role of co-production in needs assessments – inevitably the first stage on the engagement process - Proposing ways in which this learning can be applied to voluntary sector organisations by practitioners, policy makers and commissioners.
