Coronavirus information for people on probation

Wales Probation Services is committed to protecting staff and services users by following national public health guidance on coronavirus (COVID-19).

Following approval by Her Majesty’s Prison & Probation Service, we will be changing the way we hold your appointments to help stop the spread of the virus. Your Case Manager will contact you about your probation appointments and what you will need to do.

All types of group work, including Community Payback and group-work programmes, have currently stopped. Your Case Manager will contact you about how you should stay in contact with probation and complete your sentence during this time.

We understand the disruption these measures will cause, but the safety and wellbeing of staff, service users and the wider community is our priority.

For health advice about coronavirus, visit the NHS website.

For the latest coronavirus advice about how to stay safe as well as financial and employment advice, visit the gov.uk website.

Infectious outbreaks, like Coronavirus can also affect your mental health. For mental health tips and support, visit Mental Health Foundation.

If you or someone you know is suffering from domestic abuse, isolation rules do not apply. Police response and support services remain available. Find support at gov.uk or call 999 if you are in immediate danger.

If you are on probation or licence and have any concerns, please contact your Case Manager.
