Reducing Reoffending

The teams are given just one day to find ways to stop criminals reoffending.

'The Fix' brings together twelve of the country's bright young minds and gives them just one day to solve an intractable problem. This week we have asked our teams to come up with ways to stop criminals re-offending when they leave prison. The day is introduced by Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the RSA and the teams will be led through the day by Cat Drew, Director at design consultancy Uscreates. Can the teams do enough to impress our judges, Dawn Austwick, Chief Executive of the Big Lottery Fund and David Willetts, former minister and Executive Chairman of the Resolution Foundation, or will they fall short?

Team One:

Thomas Wastling - recent winner of the RSA Student Design Awards.

Oliver Sweet - runs an ethnographic research department at Ipsos MORI.

Miriam Redi - social dynamics research scientist Bell Labs Cambridge.

Naho Matsuda - artist and designer.

Team Two:

Gemma Hitchens - account director at Signal Noise, which specialises in making sense of an increasingly complex world through data visualisation and analysis.

Laurence Grinyer - service designer at Parliament.

Thibault Guenat - marketing at Uscreates

Team Three:

Sarah Douglas - Co-director of The Liminal Space, a creative engagement consultancy.

Vasant Chari - project lead at the Policy Lab. Policy Lab is bringing new policy techniques to departments across the civil service.

Bola Adegbulu - co-founder and CEO of Predina Technologies. The company models how vehicles interact with their environments to quantify risk.
