We are pleased to be holding a webinar on the 27th September focused on the interconnecting policy and practice that shapes the experiences of people with drug and alcohol problems within criminal justice system. It will be chaired by Collective Voice Trustee Mike Trace, Chief Executive of Forward Trust.
Keynote speaker HM Chief Inspector of Probation Justin Russell will present findings from the Inspectorate’s recent report on drug treatment, which found referrals from probation into specialist services at a critically low level. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Nino Maddalena, Criminal Justice Manager at Public Health England and Hendrik de Vries, Peer Mentor at Turning Point.
The second half of the webinar will feature three good-practice presentations from around the criminal justice and substance misuse treatment systems, followed by a panel discussion on the broader, interconnecting themes across their work. Our three speakers are:
- Megan Jones, Director of New Business and Services at Cranstoun
- Mignon French, Mental Health Treatment Requirement Programme Manager at NHS England/Improvement
- Phil Bowen, Director of The Centre for Justice Innovation
