Abstract National Objectives and Standards for Social Work Services in the Criminal Justice System and the 100 per cent funding initiative ('the policy') were introduced in 1991 in order to secure the provision of services which have the confidence of both criminal justice decision makers and the wider public. This study is part of the social research programme designed to evaluate policy implementation. It examines the longer term impact on offending and on offenders' social circumstances of probation supervision and community-based throughcare.
