“The one really solid piece of evidence we have about the majority of those who get caught up in the criminal justice system is that they are drawn from the most deprived and disadvantaged in our society. Reducing reoffending is an important aspiration, but it has not previously been the only reason for working with offenders. It is unfashionable to argue that we owe them a duty of care, but that does not make it any less true”.
