Process for Assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention

Where an individual is suitable for and could benefit from supervision as a court disposal, a court social work report will state this. Where an individual is given supervision as a disposal, justice social work will meet with the individual and to identify a suitable plan to support desistance. This could include assistance to access activity, training, or other intervention based on the person’s needs, skills, abilities and interests. The supervision will be tailored to the individual to support the likelihood of successful completion.
