‘Race in Probation: Achieving better outcomes for black and minority ethnic users of probation services’ is a new book from IARS, a UK-based leading, international think-tank. It asks how service outcomes can be improved for black and minority ethnic users of probation services. London was the locus of investigation and the London Probation Trust the nexus of the book’s research. Issues around community engagement, restorative justice, mental health, substance abuse, foreign nationals, victims and resettlement are analysed, and recommendations are posited. The book identifies new paths to race equality that seize the international and national momentum of institutional and policy restructures.
The book is now available for sale from IARS’ Charity Bookstore. All proceeds go to charity.
