unstar this property answer text <p>In May 2018, the Government amended the Parole Board Rules to allow victims and other parties to request summaries of Parole Board decisions for the first time. To date, the Parole Board has produced over 1000 decision summaries. This has helped victims and the wider public have a greater understanding of parole decisions.</p><p> </p><p>Decision summaries have been an important first step in bringing greater openness to the parole system. In September 2018, the Government’s Victims’ Strategy recognised that more must be done to increase the transparency of the parole process and the way we communicate with victims. Since then, in February 2019, the Secretary of State published a Review of the Parole Board Rules which further underlined the Government’s commitment to improve the transparency of the parole process.</p><p> </p><p>In light of this review, the Parole Board have committed to:</p><ul><li>produce Standard Practice guidance to provide clear and public information about how release decisions are reached</li><li>improve other publicly available information about how parole works</li><li>continue to work with broadcast and print media to increase understanding of how parole works, including allowing the media to observe some hearings</li></ul><p> </p><p>These measures will improve public understanding of how the parole system operates, support greater consistency in decision making and provide accountability where standards may not have been met.</p><p> </p><p>In February 2019, the Secretary of State also launched a Tailored Review of the Parole Board. This review will include further reflection on the transparency of the Parole Board, its governance, decision making and the information and data it shares with the public (building on the work of recent reviews). The Tailored Review will publish its findings in the summer of 2019.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department recognises that the expertise and commitment of voluntary sector organisations is vital in helping offenders turn their lives around. The Department aims to encourage greater involvement of the voluntary sector in the provision of probation services through the next generation of probation contracts.</p><p> </p><p>We undertook a public consultation on this and other proposals to improve probation in summer 2018, and we are currently reflecting on the feedback received as we refine and test our plans. In particular, the Department is exploring which commercial and commissioning arrangements will best promote the involvement of the voluntary sector and how to encourage providers to develop their supply chains. Additionally, we are considering the ways in which a strengthened regional role for the HMPPS can foster closer links between providers and voluntary sector organisations.</p> more like this
