Kent Probation: Changing Lives, Reducing Crime

Kent Probation is a statutory criminal justice agency with more than 100 years of experience of working with offenders on community orders and licences.

Our Purpose is to ‘protect the public and reduce re-offending by delivering the orders of the courts and by helping offenders to reform their lives.'

We are experts at working with vulnerable people, changing their behaviour and managing risk.  We know what works, and run a range of internationally-recognised programmes and interventions, which reduce crime, by changing particular behaviour associated with offending. 

We have also led the way in developing new and pioneering interventions, often in partnership, to address shared priorities, such as domestic abuse. This has won Kent Probation an array of national awards (including Butler Trust and Howard League Awards).

Find out more about our awards, our innovative services and our success stories.
