Evidence & Impact

The Intervention Hub is primarily based on Computerised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CCBT), which is an endorsed treatment by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE). However, the Intervention Hub also incorporates other theoretical models such as:

  • Mindfulness
  • Desistance Theory
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Cycle of Change
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Pro Social Modelling.


Before implementation, all our programmes were extensively piloted to build an evidence base and strong track record. To do this, we tested our programmes in both England and the Isle of Man.

Hate Crime Behavioural Insights Trial

In collaboration with Cambridgeshire County Council, Cambridgeshire Constabulary, and Cumbria Constabulary, we have implemented a Hate Crime Behavioural Insights Trial. The aim of this project is to change the motivations and behaviours of Hate Crime perpetrators, reduce public sector demand linked to Hate Crime, and increase confidence in reporting Hate Crime and Hate incidents reported in Cambridgeshire, Fenland and Peterborough.

Our professional programmes facilitators who deliver this intervention have been sharing a bit about themselves and their experiences.
