Prison based social work

We provide prison based social work services to His Majesty's Prison (HMP) Grampian by arrangement with the Scottish Prison Service.

Our service includes:

  • risk assessment to help decide a prisoner’s level of risk of re-offending and their risk of harm to the public
  • preparing Parole and other reports to help with decisions about sentence management and release of a prisoner
  • contributing to Integrated Case Management - an approach aimed at holistic and seamless assessment and intervention between prison and community
  • liaising with community agencies and preparing prisoners for release
  • facilitating behaviour change programmes with prisoners to tackle their offending behaviour
