Wordsworth House Community Forum


The Wordsworth House Approved Premises Community Forum has been created to facilitate communication between the community and Wordsworth House. Prior to April 2001, an Advisory Committee was in place; this was disbanded when the Lincolnshire Probation Service became part of the National Probation Service.


The Terms of Reference of the Community Forum are:-


  • To contribute to the development and maintenance of good relations with neighbours.


  • To assist positively communicating the work of Wordsworth House to both the community and Courts.


  • To consider the Manager’s recommendations and nominations for the Hilary Sternfield Award.


  • To share and discuss any relevant incidents or concerns raised by the Forum members or by Approved Premises residents.


  • To report annually to the Lincolnshire Probation Board.
