Probation Under Threat
The Ministry of Jusitce is pushing through its Transforming Rehabilitation plans to outsource 70% of the Probation Service's work by the end of 2014. Napo belives that the true motivation behind this is to drive down costs and an ideological commitment on the part of the government to the private sector being the preferred bidder as opposed to state run services.
If these plans proceed it will lead to fragmentation of the service, staff cuts (that is how the government will make its savings and the companies their profit) and will severly compromise public protection.
Napo is campaigning vigourously to defend the Probation Service from this threat.
