Where we want to be - Hold the Budget, grow the provision

underlying principles
Underlying Principles
  • Public good, not public monopoly
  • Not everything needs to be done by “us”
  • Others have expertise
  • Others have access to resources
  • Others can add value
  • “think global, act local” i.e. systemic change driven locally

Dependence – Probation lead agency

VCS dependent on funding risks distorting aims

  • Independence – VCS are the experts, alliances with private sector, bids for OM work etc.
  • Interdependence – we all have a place at the table, we hold money for the public good; it needs to be brought together with wider sector skills, experience, aims.

the 1 step beyond commissioning model from the bottom up
The 1 step beyond commissioning model from the “bottom up”
  • No ring fenced pot of cash or a developed specification to go to the ‘market’
  • Identify the business needs of Probation first - invite innovate solutions from the VCS and other partners – multiple outcomes
  • ‘Dragons den’ style meeting of stakeholders with the relevant VCS agency/agencies involved
  • Identify initial resources to pilot an activity
  • Resources could be a wide mix of cash, seconded staff, contracts, income generation activity, grants, equipment, office space, volunteers, matched funding, etc.
  • Agree a service specification and include in a standard contract template
  • Evaluation model built in at the start (action research) to use as a business case for attracting resources, sustaining the service or scaling up investment from Probation and/or other stakeholders

  • Community Justice Partners do majority of ‘Offender Supervision’
  • Bottom up commissioning arrangements
  • Joint business development activity & policy influencing
