About this book


The voluntary sector has a long history of involvement in criminal justice by providing a variety of services to offenders and their families, victims and witnesses. This collection brings together leading experts to provide critical reflections and cutting edge research on the contemporary features of voluntary sector work in criminal justice. 

At a time when the voluntary sector's role is being transformed, this book examines the dynamic nature of the voluntary sector and its responses to current uncertainties, and some of the conflicting positions with regards to its present and future role in criminal justice work. It also examines the potential impact of economic, political and ideological trends on the role and remit of voluntary sector organisations which undertake criminal justice work.

Bibliographic information


'What is rare and invaluable about this volume is the insight it provides from diverse perspectives: academic analysis, international practice and importantly stakeholder views. Such diversity clearly reflects the reality for the voluntary sector in the expectations and reliance placed on it in an increasingly diverse and complex criminal justice system.' - Anita Dockley, Research Director, The Howard League for Penal Reform
