Tim Snowdon of Changing Tunes says the voluntary sector is very concerned about payment by results

In this latest in a series of short video interviews on payment by results, Tim Snowdon, Director of Changing Tunes, a project which reduces re-offending through music gives his views on PbR.

Tim thinks that the complexity and multi-agency nature of effective work to prevent re-offending means that PbR is not an appropriate commissioning model.
