Coronavirus information for people on probation

Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company 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 Responsible Officer will contact you with information 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 Responsible Officer will contact you about how you will have to 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.

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

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