Does it work?
During 2014 the IRiS scheme as a whole, its principles and delivery processes were evaluated by the University of Portsmouth. The report highlighted a number of successes and benefits of the pilot project which is now seen as an innovative best practice area for development for other IOM schemes across the country.

Due to the success of the IRiS pilot in Bristol, the scheme will shortly be delivered in all districts of Avon and Somerset from the end of 2014.
