The 3rd Annual Probation Practitioner Conference, delivered in partnership with the National Probation Service and the Community Rehabilitation Companies, will take place on the 2nd July 2018 at Resource for London and will give attendees the opportunity to take stock of current practice, to share good practice and the latest research and to look at what ways the probation world can go forward to achieve stronger outcomes.
Speakers and workshops will discuss pathways for the future with key messages about partnership, communication and integration. They will focus on innovative practice, research outcomes, professional development and ways in which organisations can collaborate better across the NPS, the CRCs and voluntary sector partners.
Clearly relationship building and communication between and within the NPS, CRCs and criminal justice partners, including the key role of the voluntary sector, is of the utmost importance to ensure that probation and CRC systems can operate effectively with their partners. Interactive workshops will focus on what is working well, what research can tell us and how best to support practitioners.
This is a targeted conference on probation, rehabilitation and resettlement with those most likely to benefit from this event including senior leaders from HMPPS, practitioners and managers from the NPS and CRCs, the Third Sector and the wider criminal justice sector including prisons, police and sentencers.
We anticipate that key themes will be raised through inputs and the very important discussion opportunities for attendees, this will include to:
– explore how provision can support and enhance consistent professionalism;
– examine how good practice can create positive outcomes for individuals and communities;
– build bridges between NPS and CRC and other providers to ensure a coherent and comprehensive approach for service users, sentencers and the public;
– explore relationship building within and between relevant partner organisations, building on what is working and what more needs to be done;
– build confidence in the development of a coherent professional workforce across probation, rehabilitation and resettlement services.
