Details of all Specific national or local scheme/intervention(s) available
The bail supervision scheme is designed to minimise the numbers of accused persons held on remand pending trial or for reports following conviction who, subject to safeguards in respect of public safely, could be released on bail to the community pending their further court hearing. The focus of bail supervision will include monitoring and ‘signposting’ to relevant support services. The content of supervision will conform to the case management plan as outlined in the bail supervision assessment. The accused person should have contact set at a minimum of twice per week in summary cases and three times a week in solemn cases, at least in the first instance. Home visits will be made on a regular basis. It is expected that the minimum number of home visits will be four in the first month, reducing to two in the second and third months and then further reducing to once a month from month four onwards.
Will vary depending on assessed risk and need. Aimed at reducing remand numbers and providing monitoring and support in the community while subject to Bail conditions.
