The workshop will hear from those involved in the pilots, identifying the early successes and challenges experienced by Probation Trusts across different pilot regions. The workshop will also provide an opportunity to discuss how the Government’s ‘Transforming Rehabilitation’ reform plans could interact with local partnership initiatives such as community budgets, and what actions are needed to ensure that localism is incorporated into the outcomes of any such reform.
The key objectives of the workshop are:
– To share experiences and lessons learned from the Whole Place Community Budget pilots so far, with a particular focus on the role played by Probation
-To consider what’s next for the Community Budget model in the field of criminal justice
-To assess how the Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation reforms would interact with Community Budgets and the broader Localism agenda.
The workshop is being jointly hosted by the Probation Chiefs Association, the Local Government Association, Greater Manchester Probation Trust and the Greater Manchester Combined Authorities. The Probation Chiefs Association represents the senior management of the 35 Probation Trusts in England and Wales. The Local Government Association is the national voice for local authorities, whilst Greater Manchester Combined Authorities represents 10 local authorities in the region.
The workshop will take place on from 10.15-15.30 on Friday 14 June at Manchester Town Hall, Albert Square, Manchester, M60 2LA
