Process for Assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention
A comprehensive assessment of people’s suitability is undertaken during the preparation of the Criminal Justice Social Work Report. In addition, a specialist assessment will also be undertaken by the Community Mental Health Team. In view of this, a period of deferment may be required in order to allow sufficient time for this specialist assessment.
Where no specific scheme/intervention is available, is there capacity to provide a bespoke service based on judicial request?
A person-centred plan will be developed for each individual.
