This report examines options for building on the Government’s reform of the offender management system in England and Wales.

It seeks to build on the ambitious reforms delivered through the Transforming Rehabilitation programme, and to map out a direction of travel for further reform of the governance and delivery of prison and probation services.

The need for a systemic approach to managing offenders and for solutions to be delivered locally is assessed, and this paper proposes options for radical devolution of responsibility for managing prisons and probation.
