Probation model

Established probation values and identity underpin our operating model. We focus on the core probation purpose of implementing the sentence of the court, reducing reoffending and protecting the public.

People we supervise often have complex needs and we recognise there is no simple solution. Our aim is to individually engage each service user in addressing the needs linked to their behaviour and to work in collaboration with partners to deliver an effective service. Our commitment is to use evidence-based practice to continually improve the quality of our service.

Our priorities

We maintain professional probation standards that deliver quality practice.
We monitor and improve practice based on proven methods of reducing reoffending.
We support employees through a comprehensive learning and professional development programme.
We engage with local stakeholders to build strong partnerships, to meet service user needs and protect the public.
We actively seek opportunities to enhance core probation delivery to enable positive change for service users.
