Probation Service Victim Liason Unit

The Victim Liason Unit provides information to victims (or their next of kin) of serious and violent offences, where the offender has received a prison sentence of 12 months or more. We also offer the service when an offender is detained as a mental health Patient and is subject to a hospital order.
We can tell you about an offenders sentence and what that means and how your views can be considered at key stages.
