The Probation Institute is an independent centre for excellence and a professional home for all those involved in probation and community justice. A key aim will be to support quality and effective probation services, promoting evidence informed policy and practice and the professional development of its members and those working in the sector.
The Institute will also be seeking to promote a better understanding of the work of probation among the public, the media, parliamentarians and the wide range of organisation that have a role in the rehabilitation of offenders. More detail can be found here.
The development of the Probation Institute is sponsored by the Probation Chiefs Association (PCA), Probation Association (PA), NAPO and UNISON.
