In October 2013, CEP (Confederation of European Probation) has organized the first World Congress on Probation. The Congress is a new initiative to bring together practitioners and those with an interest in probation and community justice from across the globe to share their knowledge and experience. The Congress has provided participants with the opportunity to examine and discuss new and changing probation practices, with the overarching principle of changing lives and behaviours. The Congress has run in partnership with the National Offender Management Service, the Probation Chiefs AssociationLondon Probation Trust, and West-Yorkshire Probation Trust and took place at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in London, UK – an excellent location to receive guests from around the world.
