Reducing Reoffending Conference – Wednesday 7th September, Holiday Inn Regents Park

This Wednesday, 7th September, Government Knowledge is hosting a conference for key stakeholders to discuss on how best to prevent repeat offending and improve the criminal justice sector’s ability to rehabilitate offenders away from crime.

The following speakers are confirmed to speak at the event at the Holiday Inn, Regents Park, Carburton Street, London, W1W 5EE
Frances Crook (Howard League for Penal Reform) / Luke Edwards (Reducing Reoffending Portfolio, Ministry of Justice) / Sally Richards (Home Office) The conference will provide an unrivalled opportunity to hear these key voices speak on the same platform to discuss about the best working practices and techniques in helping prisoners rehabilitate with the ultimate aim of reducing crime and diminishing the burden placed on the prison system. The debate about rehabilitating methods is rapidly evolving as more stakeholders express their views. The event on Wednesday will give a fantastic insight into how processes can be implemented to help ensure the offenders stay committed to reoffending reform.

• Analysing the response to the Rehabilitation Green Paper
• Reforming the prison experience to support rehabilitation
• The role of ICT in delivering the rehabilitation revolution
• Understanding the impact of budgetary restraints on core frontline services and staff

Delegates from across the criminal justice and social service sectors – the police, the prison service, the courts, probation trusts, local authorities, central government departments and agencies, and third sector organisations – will be looking at how best to reduce reoffending.
