Reforms to probation are underway. The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) have started the commissioning process for probation services.
This briefing event is an opportunity to understand how the reformed probation service intends to meet the needs of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME*) people under probation supervision and engage BAME-led and BAME-specialist organisations in service delivery. It is specifically aimed at these organisations.
This session will aim to provide:
- A brief introduction to the new probation model
- An outline regarding how MoJ / HMPPS intend to ensure that the needs of BAME individuals are met
- Information about the commissioning of probation services via the dynamic framework with a specific focus on the potential opportunities for BAME-led and -BAME specialist organisations
*We acknowledge that the term BAME can be problematic as it refers to a group of people who are far from homogenous. The intersection of race, ethnicity, faith, and culture makes social identities multi-faceted and shifting – the experiences of individuals within these groups will vary. Wherever possible, we seek to be specific when describing groups of people but at times use the term BAME – albeit reluctantly – to describe inequality and discrimination across groups when necessary.
These events are only open to voluntary organisations. As we are expecting a lot of interest please only book one place per organisation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
What is the probation Dynamic Framework?
The Dynamic Framework is the mechanism through which rehabilitation and resettlement interventions will be procured for the future probation model. The framework is the main opportunity for voluntary organisations of all sizes to deliver services through the new probation system. Find out more here
