HMI Probation Through the Gate Inspection

HMI Probation thematic inspection of through the gate resettlement services for short-term prisoners. There was little evidence of the anticipated creativity or innovation in the new services being delivered by the CRCs. Payment by results isn’t in anyway incentivising the work when compared with direct contractual requirements. Too many prisoners are reaching their release date without their immediate resettlement needs having been met, or even recognised.
