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.
