Perceptions and Practices of 'Rehabilitation' in a Community Rehabilitation Company: disconnects between theory and practice

Roberts, Nicola and Rohan, Katy (2021) Perceptions and Practices of 'Rehabilitation' in a Community Rehabilitation Company: disconnects between theory and practice. In: Future of Probation – Special Issue Seminar Programme, 3 Nov 2021, Online. (Unpublished)

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

Much academic writing has been published about the then government’s disastrous Transforming Rehabilitation agenda and the subsequent impact of this on the part privatisation of the probation service: particularly about the failure of the newly formed Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRC) to meet targets (National Audit Office, 2019; Roberts, 2018; Tidmarsh, 2020). Much less has been published about practitioners’ views on working in a CRC. This article presents findings from interviews with such practitioners. Whilst the wrap around community response provided to offenders is worthwhile in principle, in practice the funding structures of CRCs hinder rehabilitative work and the reintegration of offenders into the community.
