Clive Martin, Director of Clinks, the umbrella body for the voluntary sector working in criminal justice, in the latest in a series of interviews about the MoJ’s probation reform programme: Transforming Rehabilitation.
Clive sees the potential that TR will be a success – introducing new thinking, focusing more on rehabilitation than managing risk and offering more choice to service users.
However, he also expresses serious concerns on:
- Whether there will be enough money in the system to fund significant change
- The use of a new, untested payment by results model
- The possible fragmentation of the system
- The challenge of delivering local services within such large Contract Package Areas
