      What we do

      The RMA works closely with partner agencies to develop and promote risk assessment and management practices that are proportionate, meaningful and legitimate. And by supporting the practitioners who work within the field of criminal justice, helping them to carry out their work effectively and consistently, we contribute to our wider purpose of reducing reoffending and the harm that it causes.
