We want this to support greater local transparency of probation performance, greater alignment of priorities and more opportunities for co-commissioning of rehabilitative services.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS Wales are building on their positive partnership with the four PCCs in Wales around priority areas such as the Dyfodol Offender Interventions service and the Women’s Pathfinder initiative, to explore potential options around the co-commissioning of services as part of the current proposals for Wales.</p>

answer text <p>The number of offenders sentenced to up to six months who had not received a previous community sentence by court type can be viewed in the table.</p><p> </p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p> </p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p> more like this
