Prison licence featured image

If you have been sentenced to a prison sentence of less than 12 months, then you will be supervised by probation on licence for up to 12 months following your release from jail. This is known as Through the Gate.

If you have been sentenced to a prison sentence of more than 12 months, then you will either be supervised by HLNY CRC or the National Probation Service on licence.

A probation supervisor will be appointed to work with you while you are in prison, to help ease your transition back into the community. In addition, a representative from our Through the Gate service will also meet with you to work with you to put together a resettlement plan. This will cover issues such as accommodation, debt and educational advice. This will all be aimed at helping you to not reoffend.
