PDF (Probation Service annual report 2022)

The Probation Service is an executive agency of the Department of Justice, committed to working to reduce  offending, create safer communities and fewer victims through offender rehabilitation.

he Probation Service is aware that alone it cannot address all of the needs of individuals who have come into contact with criminal justice system. Recognising the unique and added value the voluntary and community sector plays in supporting desistence from offending, the Probation Service provided €17.532 million of funding to community based organisations (CBOs) across the country to develop and deliver services to offenders in their communities last year. These organisations, working alongside the Service, provide a diverse range of services, including training and education, offender management programmes, support to access accommodation, drug and alcohol treatment programmes, and access to employment opportunities. These services and programmes are also a very important step in the re-integration of an offender back into their local community.
