Napo HQ have just heard from Sonia Crozier, Director of Probation, that following an inspection by the MoJ, a decision has been made to immediately close the NPS Burnley Probation Office due to the presence of Asbestos on the premises.

Ian Lawrence, General Secretary, has advised the Napo Branch of this news and to offer such support as is necessary to members who will quite understandably be very concerned about this development.

We understand that urgent arrangements will be made to arrange health checks for staff and that contingency plans will be put in place to cover service provision going forward while a search for alternative accommodation commences.

It would be appreciated if any Napo members who have immediate issues that they feel should be addressed would contact their local Branch Rep who will if necessary liaise with Napo HQ.
