The conversation everywhere is the green paper and payment by results. Never  before has it been so important for the voluntary sector, probation, police and  yes, the private sector to form sensible alliances so that not only do we reduce the number of those who will be damaged by the cuts but most important to show the policy makers and the public that solutions to crime already exist and work. We may need to shave costs but the message to government is: don’t dismantle what works but maintain a realistic investment in such programmes so that they can survive to live another day and continue to reducing offending.
