To this end, one of the stated aims of the scheme was to ‘test and develop the collaboration and governance of multitiered voluntary sector partnerships with some agencies as partners and suppliers’ (NOMS, 2007: 1). The scheme was run by three voluntary sector organisations. Nacro was the lead agency providing day-to-day support to defendants; Foundation Housing managed the accommodation provision; and SOVA managed the mentoring aspect of the scheme. The EBS had a three-tier governance structure.
At the start of the project, it had been suggested that the probation areas would accommodate staff within their court teams. Generally, all or some of the project staff were located within probation facilities either at courts or in offices nearby. Nonetheless, some probation managers raised concerns about their resources being used for the scheme without recognition or reimbursement. In two areas all of the project team were located together. This resulted in a much greater level of integration, team working and efficiency and had considerable payoffs in terms of staff morale, workload management, communication and so on.
Consequently, most RoB-eligible cases were screened out before bail information officers interviewed defendants. However, nearly without exception, interviewees advocated that decision-makers should be able to impose RoB and bail support conditions together. The reasons given for this were that there was no accommodation provided by the Drug Interventions Programme (DIP) and that there was uncertainty about the level of support offered by DIP other than in relation to drug treatment. Interviewees also believed that imposing both conditions simultaneously would reduce custodial remands, and data support this view.
