In the Catch22Minutes podcast, we delve into some of today’s major social challenges. We speak to frontline experts, industry leaders and young people, in pursuit of ideas for reforming public services.
The second season focused on the UK’s justice sector and was presented by Catch22’s former Communications and Marketing Manager, Josie Cochrane. From developing restorative justice to reducing the impact of court delays, this series was focused on solutions which could impact every aspect of the justice sector.
Effective service design and delivery is essential in public services. Whether it’s improving outcomes for prison leavers – or transforming the education system – we all want to create meaningful impact. But too often commissioning models, measures of success, and a failure to understand the needs of those involved can ruin great ideas.
In this episode, we are joined by Cell Workout creator LJ Flanders, and Head of Social Impact Challenge Lab, Judah Armani. We discuss the challenges with co-creation and how we can overcome these to better innovate public services across the entire justice sector.
Judah Armani is Head of the Social Impact Challenge Lab at the Royal College of Art’s Service Design department and a researcher at Central St Martin’s Design Against Crime Team. LJ Flanders developed the influential Cell Workout programme while spending a period in prison. Since then, a successful book of the same name has been released, as well as the Cell Workout athleisure brand. LJ now works closely with Catch22 on developing our Achieving Compliance and Engagement programme, specifically focusing on the power of sport reduce the rate of fixed-term recalls.
