Lyn Brown – 2021 Comments on Race Equality in the Probation Service

The comments made by Lyn Brown, the Shadow Prisons and Probation Minister, on 16 March 2021.

Trusting relationships and understanding between probation staff and those in their care are essential for rehabilitation and equality before the law.

As probation services in England and Wales are reintegrated this year, we need a new focus on race equality for staff and service users from all our communities.

The Government must set out a clear action plan to repair the damage that Chris Grayling’s botched privatisation has done.
