Understanding sector experience of Transforming Rehabilitation

A joint project to track the voluntary sector’s experience of recent changes to probation and prison services under the government’s Transforming Rehabilitation programme has published findings from a preliminary survey.

Clinks, the body for organisations working with offenders, has partnered with NCVO and Third Sector Research Centre. NCVO’s article says that “the overwhelming sense we got from voluntary sector respondents was uncertainty” – read more in ‘Transforming Rehabilitation: Uncertainty Reigns‘.

Clinks’ slightly longer article about the findings is ‘Warning signals – the voluntary sector in TR‘. or get the report ‘Early doors: The voluntary sector’s role in Transforming Rehabilitation’ (pdf, 364KB) via Clinks publication page, which also has an infographic on key findings.

A further survey has just been launched to get to grips with the sector’s experiences of Transforming Rehabilitation.

If your organisation is engaging in TR, either directly or indirectly, we want to hear about your experiences; the evidence you provide will enable us to highlight emerging good practice, as well as areas that need improvement, leading to clear recommendations for Government and other stakeholders.

Both NCVO and Clinks articles have their own links to the survey.
