star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>Our reforms to probation mean we are now monitoring around 40,000 offenders who would previously have been released with no supervision at all. We have seen a reduction of two percentage points in the reoffending rates of those supervised by Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs). We have been clear, however, that overall performance of CRCs needs to improve across a range of areas. We have taken decisive action to stabilise and improve the delivery of probation services, including by investing £22m per year to enhance ‘Through The Gate’ services and introducing minimum standards so that all providers offer monthly face-to-face meetings with offenders during their first 12 months of supervision. In September, we concluded a public consultation on proposals to end current CRC contracts early and introduce new arrangements for delivering probation services that will better integrate public, private and third sector probation providers and improve outcomes. We will bring forward more detailed plans early next year.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
