In May 2014, the Justice Committee asked User Voice to engage service users and record their reactions to the Government’s programme of reforms and efficiency savings within prison. For this consultation, User Voice undertook focus groups across England with service users from two prisons and five probation trusts.
Service Users were extremely knowledgeable of the Government’s programme of reforms and efficiency savings, and demonstrated a great enthusiasm to have their voices heard. The evidence gathered through the focus groups have been presented to the Justice Committee and are available in our reports.
