The management of community justice services in Scotland: policy-making and the dynamics of central and local control.

  For observers of, and those involved with, the Probation Service in England and Wales, this is a bleak time. As the Ministry of Justice pushes through reforms which will see 70% of Probation Trusts’ work outsourced to voluntary and private bidders on a system of payment by results (PbR) and morale in the Probation Service is at an alltime low (see for example Hedderman, 2013; Phillips, 2014; Robinson, 2013; Senior, 2013), a time when probation in England and Wales was underpinned by social work values and principles seems a distant memory.
