Newsletter 4 November 2013

Dear PCA member

This edition provides a round-up of various items linked to the MoJ Transforming Rehabilitation (TR)  Programme. The House of Commons Debate on the Government’s TR plans on 30 October, the Second Reading of the Offender Rehabilitation Bill is now scheduled to start on 11 November, and Napo’s announced strike on 5/6 November, have given rise to significant media interest. Find out PCA’s reaction below.

We are also opening registration for PCA Members to the PCA Conference to be held on 23/24 January in Manchester. The Draft Programme  is here. This is at an early stage of development so if you have any suggestions please let us know.

We have already written to Chief Executives of trusts, suggesting that this year it would be helpful if registrations could be coordinated through their offices. So if you would like to register, please confirm with your trust CEO’s office in the first instance . In any case also let Catherine Sinclair-Jones (pcaadmin@localhost) here at PCA know. Please note that we need you to register, if at all possible, by 16 December. This will help us with our planning and places may be limited after that date!

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