The recent prisons green paper has set out plans for payment by results in offender management, where contractors will be paid for reducing the re-offending rates of offenders under their care.
An example of this kind of programme is the recently launched Peterborough pilot scheme where a social impact bond will be used to fund innovative new interventions to tackle recidivism.
This conference will examine the potential for a national payment by results approach to be adopted and the appropriate design of the system.
