The Justice Committee holds its final evidence session as part of its inquiry into Transforming Rehabilitation.

Transforming Rehabilitation has attracted criticism since its implementation, including in reports by the National Audit Office, the Public Accounts Committee, and by HM Chief Inspectors of Probation and Prisons, including in reports on resettlement services for short term prisoners and for prisoners serving 12 months or more.

  • Probation staff
  • Joint working within the probation sector
