The subject of the supervision and how often you need to report will be specified in a sentence plan.
What will happen in supervision?
Typically 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 probation officer on fulfilling other aspects of your Comnunity Order
- 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 is expected of me?
- listen carefully to what your responsible officer says and do what they ask you to do
- turn up for appointments on time
- make sure you turn up in a fit state to take part
- show respect to probation staff and other people you meet during your sentence
- tell your offender manager straight away if you plan to change your address or phone number
- tell your offender manager straight away if you are unable to keep an appointment or if you have a problem with anything else in your sentence
- stick to any other rules you may be given as part of your Community Order
- tell your offender manager if you are having any other problems with completing your sentence
- let your offender manager visit you at home if they need to
- stay out of trouble.
