Over the last year Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation has inspected every probation service in England and Wales – both NPS and CRCs – as well as publishing a number of important thematic reviews.
Drawing on evidence from thousands of individual cases and hundreds of probation officer interviews, what do these inspections tell us about the current state of probation? How well are they supporting offenders to turn their lives around and manage risks to the public? Are workloads manageable? What is the quality of leadership and of the services they offer? And are there any signs of improvement?
