From 1st June 2014, a National Probation Service and 21 Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) will take over probation services for England and Wales. This move follows the closure of the UK’s 35 probation trusts as part of the government’s Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) agenda. 

The CRCs will manage offenders that the National Probation Service assess as low and medium risk of harm and provide other interventions such as Community Payback. 

By April 2015, the CRCs will be transferred over to private and voluntary organisations, which are currently competing for the provision of these services. A new and smaller public sector National Probation Service (NPS) will retain responsibility for the supervision of high risk offenders.

How are the changes affecting you and your career?
