Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor, Chris Grayling, paid a visit to Essex CRC’s Headquarters in Witham this month to seek views about the Transition, our current situation, and our aims going forward.

He revealed his own thinking to both Community Rehabilitation Company and National Probation Service staff, in two separate meetings. The third involved Essex CRC’s Senior Management Team.

Staff informed him of the challenges they had needed to overcome and the issues still facing them in the coming months.

He listened to some of the detail involved in achieving the vital links between CRC and NPS. Established systems and processes are crucial in maintaining cohesion between the two, and we are still working to make these as good as possible.
