Changes to Probaton Service

A Press Release from the Probation Service says that from June 1st the local probation service will be abolished. Staff will transfer to either the National Probation Service or one of 21 ‘shadow’ Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRC’s).

The statement said that ‘these reforms are costly, bureaucratic and unsafe. They are causing chaos and demoralisation among probation staff.’

In the autumn, the Government is planning to sell off CRC’s to the private sector and let them run for a profit. None of the companies who are bidding has a track record in running a probation service.

Napo; UNISON; and GMB are the trade unions representing the probation workforce.
We are campaigning to stop the privatisation and keep probation a local accountable service. Community safety is at real risk if the sell-off cannot be stopped.

Rght Hon. Chris Grayling Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice can be reached through his web page.
Theresa May the Home Secretary can also be contacted through her web page.
