This research looks at the experience of adults moving from a process of rehabilitation into education training and employment.

Back on Track conducted in-depth interviews 30 adults who were recovering from problems such as mental illness, substance misuse, homelessness or offending. The interviews were analysed by an independent researcher, and we have drawn together implications for Back on Track and for wider policy and practice.
