Transforming Rehabilitation: The voluntary sector perspective

This is a write-up a discussion convened by NPC with representatives from voluntary sector organisations that had unsuccessfully bid in the Transforming Rehabilitation Tier 1 tendering process.

When the Ministry of Justice Transforming Rehabilitation programme launched, charities were encouraged to apply, but 20 of the 21 contracts were won by private sector led partnerships.

We felt it important to gain the perspectives of those involved to better understand the reasons for this failure and what can be learned for the future.
