The Institute is an independent centre of excellence and a professional home for all those involved in probation and community rehabilitation work. We support effective services; promote evidence-based policy and practice and the professional development of our members. We will also seek a central role in explaining the work of probation to the media, parliamentarians and the public.

All those involved in probation and community justice are welcome to join as a founder member. Read more.

The Probation Institute is sponsored by the Probation Chiefs Association (PCA), Probation Association (PA), NAPO and UNISON.
