Next week (Tuesday 1st July, 7pm – 8pm) we will be hosting the second of our live, interactive online discussions which will explain more about how probation workers may be affected by the government’s upcoming Transforming Rehabilitation initiative. 

During the live chat, those working in the probation sector will have the opportunity to ask questions to a number of high profile panellists who will be on hand to give their thoughts and opinions on how you may be affected by the changes. 

Amongst those taking part in the discussion will be:
