The Justice Select Committee Report on Transforming Rehabilitation was published in June and UNISON responded on the same day to its findings.
The Committee has delivered a damning Report on TR and its detrimental impact on service users, communities and staff. The Report bears out what UNISON has been saying for years, that TR has failed and needs to be replaced.
UNISON’s evidence to the Committee helped it to come to these conclusions. The Report requires the MOJ to undertake a Probation Review of alternative models for Probation to replace TR.
Please find attached a UNISON NPS and CRC News which covers UNISON’s reaction to the Select Committee Report. The bulletin also sets out UNISON’s proposed rescue plan for Probation, on which we will consult members during the forthcoming Probation Review.
