CoPPer aims to increase community participation as a vital element that can enhance the work of probation staff in supporting these often low-qualified adults to pursue education, training and employment opportunities once outside prison or while serving community sanctions.
Bring together European organisations from probation system, civil society, academia, and volunteering fields to create a transnational network focused on sharing knowledge and grassroot experience to co-explore ways of both increasing engagement and valuing the role volunteers and community play in the offender’s rehabilitation journey with the final goal of a crime-free life for the offenders.
WHAT WE EXPECT TO DO
1 / Identify ‘good practices’ in engaging volunteers and CBOs in probation services
2 / Create a European training offer for volunteers in probation services informed by “what works”
3 / Enhance the capacity of the CBOs to provide/ maintain a service of quality
4/ Maximize the performance of the probation agencies
5/ Develop a PAN EU collaboration network for inter-agency in the probation system
Who do we want to involve?
Besides these ones we want to involve decision makers, academia/researchers, families of people in contact with the law and others
Prison and Probation Servies
People in Conflict with the Law
