The Ministry of Justice under Chris Grayling is planning the most radical changes to the probation service in its history. The changes include:
- The proposal to put 70% of the probation service’s business – all its work with low and medium risk offenders – out to competition.
- These new contracts to be awarded on a payment by results basis.
- New mandatory supervision and support for short term prisoners on release.
- The consolidation of the current 35 probation trusts into 21 contract package areas.
