Summary
"The English and Welsh probation service's venture into financial partnerships with non-statutory agencies during the 1990s was viewed both as a development opportunity for improving services, and as a threat to professional identity and job security. Judith Rumgay studies partnership development with particular focus on programmes for substance misusing offenders, at a time when policy and practice in the drugs field was equally complex, following introduction of new community care arrangements and pursuit of harm minimization strategies. She explores inter-professional tensions, identifies features common to successful partnerships, and compares partnership arrangements with in-house specialist projects. She argues that the partnership enterprise touches the heart of the probation service's mission in local communities. It is this perspective which defines its relationships, for better or worse, with voluntary sector partners. She concludes that the contemporary probation service needs strong relationships with non-statutory organizations in order to preserve its tradition as a rehabilitative, rather than an enforcement, agency."--BOOK JACKET
