Tracking Transforming Rehabilitation Probation reforms
IVAR is working with Clinks to understand the new probation model, Transforming Rehabilitation, due to be introduced in June 2021. This policy reform intends on involving the voluntary sector in the delivery of services for people under probation supervision.
In partnership with Sheffield Hallam and Wolverhampton University we will use a survey and qualitative case studies to understand the role of the voluntary sector in the new probation model, and specifically, the impact of the commissioning model on organisations’ ability to engage with the new probation program. This will be used to inform future procurement practices both in the commissioning of post day one services and beyond the probation service.
