News  | 26 / 03 / 2020

The Parole Board for Scotland are both hugely appreciative of the continued contribution of social work colleagues, and mindful of the need to minimise workloads for social work colleagues in relation to the parole process. With this in mind the Board has agreed some revised arrangements for parole processes that will apply with immediate effect. A joint letter from SWS and the Board has been issued to social work teams across Scotland that sets out revised arrangements for Oral Hearings/Tribunals, arrangements for contacting the Board, and guidance on provision of reports in an abbreviated format.
