Have you got a horror story about Probation Estates?

Share this


It is a little late for Halloween but we have been hearing some horror stories about Probation Estates issues. From Unpaid Work staff being expected to use old shipping containers with no electricity or water to unlit grounds and car parks where staff are told to use the torch on their mobile to find their way, we know that every area has them. We’ve heard about toilets that open into kitchens and massive delays to repairs. We’ve heard about offices with no secure staff area and new premises being refurbished with no lift. Many have inadequate health and safety risk assessments and meaningful equality analyses are rare. In order to continue to raise these issues we need your help – tell us your stories about estates, include pictures where you can do this without breaching confidentiality. Please email us via editorial@napo.org.uk putting ‘estates’ in the subject line.
