Newsletter 11 April 2013

Dear PCA member

Following the Easter break we have a packed edition of the PCA Newsletter.

The Transforming Justice Proposals continue to pre-occupy Trusts and of course PCA.  We continue to present our views to a wide range of stakeholders, including later in April with the Secretary of State, Chris Grayling, and at the All-Party Parliamentary Penal Affairs Group. We understand that the Government’s response to the Consultation is planned to be published mid-May.

We value your feedback.  Send your comments to feedback@localhost

PA/PCA Article in Magistrate

The PA and PCA have produced a joint article for the Magistrates Associations magazine ‘Magistrate’ outlining the serious concerns held by both organisations about some of the  reforms proposed in the Transforming Rehabilitation Consultation. The article outlines the possibility of increased risks to public protection of the proposals to split Offender Management and the adverse impact on local partnerships. Read the article here.

Learning Sets for Senior Managers

Trusts in the South West, South East and London have been working together to run Action Learning Sets for Directors since May 2012 and the first cohort of these sets has now successfully concluded. This programme of action learning is being extended to a wider group and this is planned to start in June. The details of the programme are set out here. Nominations should be sent directly to Elspeth Hayde, HR Director Surrey/Sussex Probation Trust by 20 April. (If any of your staff have already been in touch with her, you do not need to contact her again.)

Barrie Crooke, CEO of Hampshire Probation Trust, also has details of a cross sector action learning programme for senior leaders which is due to begin in July.  This is organised by the Cross Sector Leadership Exchange (a group of public sector bodies including the Police and NHS Blood and Transplant authority). The programme is 6 separate days over a period of 9 months. At this time Barrie does not have any details of price or the venues. If anyone would like to find out more about this programme please contact him directly at

PCA responds to new sentencing guidelines on sexual offences

The PCA have responded to the Sentencing Council’s consultation on draft new guidelines on sexual offences. The Sentencing Council’s decision to revise the sentencing guidelines relating to the Sexual Offences Act 2003 reflects the changing nature of sexual offending, and their assessment of how such offences are currently being dealt with by the courts. In the consultation’s preface, the Sentencing Council have highlighted their particular considerations over incorporating the perspective of victims, the balancing of public protection into both custodial and community orders, and the rise of sexual offences committed via the internet and new technologies. Read the PCA’s response at here

New Performance Portfolio Lead

We are pleased to announce that Kevin Robinson, CE Lancashire, will be the new PCA Performance lead.

Youth to adult transitions

The YJB are trying to improve the way young people are transferred from youth to adult justice services. Several inquiries, reviews and investigations, including the recent HMIP thematic inspection on transitions, have criticised the way that such transfers take place in custody and in the community. Serious incidents have occurred that have compromised public protection and the safeguarding of young people.

The YJB, in conjunction with NOMS, have recently launched the Youth to Adult Transitions Framework. The Framework is advice for YOT and Probation Trust managers writing local transition protocols that detail how transitions at, or around the age of, 18 will be managed in their local community. Download a copy of the Framework here.

Many YOTs are currently writing or revising local transition protocols in light of the new Framework. The YJB ask that YOTs and Probation Trusts should work together to develop and jointly own their local transition protocol. If you are not currently engaged in this work then please contact your local YOT to develop your local transition protocol.

YJB would also like to encourage you to subscribe to the new transitions web pages on the Justice website. The web pages provide information on all the work areas to improve transitions from youth to adult justice services, including: the Y2A information sharing portal, Youth to Adult Transitions Forum, NOMS Transitions Custody Protocol, and also some good practice resources. To subscribe, please go here and enter your email address in the box in the top right-hand corner.

For more information on any of the work to improve transitions, please contact Dominic Stevens, YJB lead on transitions:

Offender Supervision in Europe – International Conference

The Offender Supervision in Europe Conference, 26 and 27 April at Liverpool Hope University, will involve presentations from the first year of work by a pan-European research network on ‘Offender Supervision in Europe’ which for the last 12 months has been scoping out what we know about how supervision is experienced by those subject to or affected by it, how it is practised by those responsible for delivering it, how key decisions about supervision are made (both in terms of who gets supervision and when and in terms of breach/recall), and, about the influence of European institutions and standards, and of policy transfer on practice in different places. There will also be international speakers from America.  More information can be found here.
