The Centre for Social Justice warmly invites you to a panel event on
The Opportunities for the Voluntary Sector in Criminal Justice
Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice
Tuesday, 23 July 2013, 9am (for a 9.15 start) to 11am
One Great George Street, London, SW1P 3AA
The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is delighted to be hosting the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, for an important discussion on the role of the voluntary sector in the Ministry of Justice’s probation reforms.
The reforms – which will open up probation services to competition and increase the use of Payment by Results – represent an opportunity for the voluntary sector to play a far larger role in reducing reoffending and cutting crime.
This event is designed to spark a debate on how the reforms can get the best out of the voluntary sector. As a result it will include a significant Q&A session. The event will also include the interim findings from a research project the CSJ have been conducting on voluntary organisations in the criminal justice sector.
The event will be opened by a speech from the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, followed by a panel debate with:
Edward Boyd, Deputy Policy Director, CSJ (Chair)
Graham Beech, Strategic Development Director, Nacro
Danny Kruger, Chief Executive, Only Connect
A private sector representative
