Marcus Roberts, Director of Policy for DrugScope, gives his views in the latest in a series of interviews about the MoJ’s probation reform programme: Transforming Rehabilitation.

Marcus welcomes the ambition and potential of TR but expresses concerns about a number of key issues:

  • Peer mentoring is a very positive approach but it is vital to ensure that peer mentors themselves receive continuing support
  • The MoJ needs to learn from the Work Programme if smaller voluntary sector organisations are going to play a full part in TR
  • If large numbers of offenders test positive for cannabis under new powers, will they be sent to prison for breach?

The Challenge of Change report – Drugscope’s publication about improving services for women involved in prostitution and substance use  – which Marcus mentions, can be downloaded here.
