Lancashire Probation Trust has been ranked the best out of 35 probation trusts.
From the results of a national questionnaire given to criminals serving community rehabilitation, it has been revealed that 89 per cent of those managed in the community have had a “positive experience” of their supervision.
The questionnaire also revealed that of the 613 offenders that took part, 86 per cent said they were less likely to re-offend in the future, while 71 per cent said the things that they had learned have made them a better person.
Also, 87 per cent also agreed that their probation officer tries to inspire them to do well in life.
Although faced with widespread change as part of Transforming Rehabilitation, Lancashire Probation Trust said it has remained committed to utilising skills and experience to manage risk, change lives and improve communities.
Chief executive Kevin Robinson said: “Although we were faced with this year’s challenge of public sector reform, our dedicated staff continue to provide robust and effective services.”
