OFFENDERS from across Barry will be taking part in a survey to give their views about their time on probation.
Building on the success of last year's feedback survey, offenders will again be invited to discuss aspects of their probation such as the levels of support and motivation provided, personal development and the overall quality of service.
Last year's survey revealed that more than three quarters of offenders across Wales felt they were less likely to re-offend due to their time on probation and 86% of participants said that they had a positive working relationship with their offender manager.
Wales Probation chief executive Sarah Payne said: "These surveys are an opportunity for those on probation to have their say on the service they receive from us.
"Previous surveys have proved very positive and hugely beneficial in highlighting areas for improvement to ensure fair treatment for all while making sure that they get the best support available from us in order to build on personal development and live non-offending lives.”
The survey will run until Friday, October 18 and be open to those who have been on an order or licence for at least two months and who have regular supervision as part of their sentence.
