Reform: Local commissioning, local solutions – Devolving offender management: this paper examines options for building on the Government’s reform of the arrangements for managing the prison, probation and surrounding systems in England and Wales. It seeks to build on the ambitious reforms delivered through the Transforming Rehabilitation programme and to map out a direction of travel for further reform of the governance and delivery of prison and probation services. It calls for a different approach: offender management services should be designed and delivered at a local level and they must also be integrated. The proposals in this report set out an ambitious blueprint for reform that sees the Government’s current programme as the first step towards a radically different model of offender management.
