Summary note of the RR3 Special Interest Group on Probation
Meeting on the Dynamic Framework - April 2020
The Reducing Reoffending Third Sector Advisory Group (RR3) has set up a special interest group (SIG) on probation, to provide a formal avenue to channel voluntary sector advice to HMPPS, ahead of the planned implementation of a reformed probation model.
The first meeting of the SIG brought together voluntary sector leaders with officials to discuss the latest plans and timelines for the Dynamic Framework. The group recommended that the qualification phase for the Dynamic Framework could be launched, but that Clinks and the wider sector must have a clear role in determining voluntary sector readiness before the full call-off competition is conducted. The RR3 is a formal advisory group to government coordinated and chaired by Clinks.
The Ministry of Justice has since announced it will launch the dynamic framework competition for rehabilitation and resettlement services as part of the future probation model in June.
