Seeking to urgently address current failings in the prison and probation system, the Government has committed to wide-ranging reforms to offender management frameworks and has pledged to deliver a 'rehabilitation revolution'.

This special symposium offers an invaluable opportunity for practitioners from across the police, prison and probation services and key stakeholders from the private and third sector to:

  • Analyse the latest policy changes to the UK’s offender management system and examine the next steps in delivering prison reform
  • Explore changes to sentencing to strengthen punishment and payback and restore public confidence in the CJS
  • Consider how to utilise the expertise of the third and private sector through the expansion of payment by results schemes
  • Assess how to deliver effective alcohol and drug rehabilitation in prisons and a tailored approach to female offenders
  • Discuss how to improve offenders’ access to education, training and employment opportunities in prison and once released
