The Bill McWilliams lecture is an annual event looking at some aspect of probation work and remembering Bill’s contribution to the intellectual life of the probation profession. It is hosted by the Centre for Community, Gender and Social Justice within the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge. This year’s theme is to be ‘lessons from the lived experience’ – drawing on first hand experience to paint a picture of contemporary supervision in the community. It is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 27 June in Cambridge.
They are looking for service user panel members who will bring a personal experience of supervision and would want to speak publicly about this. The event is usually attended by about 80-100 people. If you are interested in becoming a panellist or can recommend someone please contact Loraine Gelsthorpe or Jane Dominey at the University of Cambridge.
