DACRC is informed by and aligned with an awareness that disruption of crime and radical creative change often emerge as a result of the inclusion of diverse voices. Our team adopt a user, misuser and abuser driven innovation approach that includes diverse communities in the co-creation process, including government departments, businesses, local communities, prisoners and returning citizens. This approach has generated a strong socially responsive design methodology (Gamman & Thorpe 2006; 2011; 2016 and 2018) as well as co-created design benchmarks, crime prevention strategies and crime diversion projects.
