Section 27 Cultural Background Reports

When it comes to sentencing, understanding an offender’s background is essential to making the right call.

Our team can provide Section 27 cultural background reports for any offender, no matter their background, history, or offending, and follow a trauma-informed method that gets the best out of our clients in the most respectful and collaborative way possible.

Our reports have been praised by the courts for the insight that they provide into offenders’ lives and the value that they add to the sentencing process. By providing the court with detailed information, they consistently result in decreased sentences, and often make the difference between imprisonment and a community-based sentence.

We understand that the courts run on a tight schedule, so our reports always arrive on time.
