The world economic crisis in combination with the 2010 change in the UK government brought a number of institutional restructures and a shift in the philosophy on public spending. Criminal justice service provision is gradually becoming an open market space where competition and privatisation are encouraged. Within this context, the role of probation trusts is revisited.
In a changing equality landscape where race is put at the bottom of policy and funding agendas, this timely book asks how service outcomes can be improved for black and minority ethnic users of probation services. London was the locus of investigation and the London Probation Trust the nexus of the book’s research. Issues around community engagement, restorative justice, mental health, substance abuse, foreign nationals, victims and resettlement are analysed, and recommendations are posited. The book identifies new paths to race equality that seize the international and national momentum of institutional and policy restructures. Its findings are not only relevant to anyone working within the field of criminal justice, but also to those fighting for race equality. pdf
