The aim of this study was to find out if attendance centres are effective for individuals who have been through the criminal justice system. The purpose was to identify whether the attendance centre was effective in relation to preventing reoffending. Qualitative data was gathered with use of interviews with young people attending the centre following a court conviction made, and also one member of staff working at the centre. This study found limited literature of this cited area; this may be due to lack of past research on the effectiveness of attendance centres, as a means of reducing reoffending. However, the responses from the interviews conducted gave relevant information to conclude that the centre is effective in many ways. Various improvements could be made in order to ensure that full effectiveness of reforming, rehabilitating and also punishing can be carried out in order to change offending behaviours of individuals.
