Responding to the Ministry of Justice Consultation on the Probation Service, Lord Victor Adebowale, Chief Executive at Turning Point said:

'We are pleased that today's announcement recognises the role independent sector organisations, including social enterprises and charities, can play in transforming rehabilitation.

 

Organisations, including Turning Point, are already demonstrating innovation in its work with offenders, building on our understanding of what is needed to reduce reoffending and to support people with complex needs  to turn their lives around.

 

The plans set out in the government's consultation provide opportunities for unique partnerships to develop which can complement the continuing role probation has within the system. We look forward to exploring further how this will work in reality.'
