Answered by: Mr Sam Gyimah
Answered on: 11 September 2017

The department has contracts with 21 Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs), comprising both private and third sector organisations, who work alongside the National Probation Service (NPS) to supervise and reform offenders. These contracts contain a payment-by-results element linked to achieving reductions in reoffending.

The first set of final reoffending data for which CRCs could receive payment-by-results income will be published in October 2017; thereafter data will be published quarterly.

We continue to hold providers rigorously to account for their performance and are working to ensure they deliver services which reduce re-offending, protect the public and help offenders contribute to society.
