Today the Government has published a consultation paper, 'Transforming Rehabilitation: a revolution in the way we manage offenders’. The paper sets out proposals to transform the way offenders are managed in the community, extend rehabilitative provision and ensure value for money.
The Government is proposing to open up the delivery of services to more providers and to deliver services across broader geographical areas and to extend rehabilitation services to a further 46,000 offenders each year who leave prison from short sentences, the great majority of which currently receive no statutory probation support.
The consultation closes on 22 February.
