If you have been given a supervision requirement by the court as part of your Community Order you will have to attend regular appointments with probation. You will have an offender manager who will supervise you during your order.
What will happen in supervision?
You will work to identify the things in your life that need to change and then get support to help you change them
Get support from your offender manager on completing other parts of your order, for example, unpaid work or a programme
Be referred to other services for help and support to address your needs such as education and training, housing or help for drug and alcohol misuse
What you must do
Stay out of trouble
Tell your offender manager immediately if you change your address or phone number
Be on time for appointments you are given
Let staff visit you at home if they need to
Keep to any extra requirements ordered by the court
Keep to any extra requirements on your licence if you have been released from prison
Take part fully in anything else your offender manager asks you to do. This may be taking part in a one-to-one or group work programme
What you must not do
You must not miss an appointment or be late
You must not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol when you report
You must not upset or threaten other people
You must not make racist, sexist or other offensive remarks
What happens if you don’t keep your appointments?
If you miss your appointments, you may have to go back to court
You could be sentenced again for your offence
If you are on licence, you could be recalled to prison
If you have a good reason for not attending, you should tell us before your appointment. If you don't tell us, we will contact you or call at your home to find out why
You can be asked to show us proof of your reason for missing an appointment. We will decide if your reason is good enough
