Russell Webster's curator insight, July 17, 2013 12:29 PM

" But instead of carving up what you do, and handing over large chunks to the private sector, there is an alternative model. I want to see strong, locally-run probation trusts that act as the ring master for all the work done to rehabilitate offenders. Trusts should be given the freedom to innovate and should decide how to operate best, who to work with. But the trusts must crack the whip to make sure everyone delivers."

Instructing somebody to meditate -- to release or dis-identify with his or her thoughts -- is like trying to instruct somebody to instantly sneeze, or like telling someone just not to think, when the mind but built to do little else but that.

What Ira shares is mirrored in understanding communication and communicating with understanding. It's not what we know that gets us in trouble. It's what we know that just ain't so that does.

t’s all too likely that big private contractors like G4S, Serco and Capita will hoover up most of the contracts with the same malign failures we saw at the Olympics and the allegedly corrupt A4E fiddling the welfare to work figures.   None of these bodies hungry for profits can remotely match the professionalism of the current probation officers.
