A “one year on” report has been published on the voluntary sector’s role in the Transforming Rehabilitation government programme of probation reforms.
An article from NCVO says that
“The reforms have taken far longer than expected to bed in and poor communication with the voluntary sector is damaging local relationships. Although it is still relatively early days, there are genuine concerns about the impact that these problems are having on the outcomes of those the programme is supporting.
“We also have some serious concerns about the diversity of providers … and sustainability.”
The report ‘Change and challenge: the voluntary sector’s role in Transforming Rehabilitation’ is available from Clinks resources pages. The 44 page publication is in pdf, 847KB.
