Abstract: First paragraph: In this chapter we focus on the issue of offenders’ different needs and whether or not it is appropriate to distinguish between them. The issues are central to conceptions of fairness, justice and discrimination. Following some preliminary discussion of what might be meant by diversity and what is known about different groups of offenders’ needs and treatment, we then look at ways in which the Probation service has sought to recognise diversity in both past and current policies and practices – particularly with regard to the notion of ‘criminogenic needs’.
