Our services Probation Support for People on Probation Personal Wellbeing Pact works with providers across England and Wales to offer holistic support for people on probation. The ‘Personal Wellbeing’ service is split into four pathways that work together: Emotional Wellbeing Social Inclusion Lifestyle & Associates Family & Significant Others Pact delivers interventions in two of these pathways: Emotional Wellbeing and Family & Significant Others through partners Ingeus, Nacro and Seetec. The service ranges from three to eight weekly sessions and people on probation can access one, two or three interventions depending on their needs. We may deliver sessions one-to-one or in small groups. We work with probation practitioners to ensure individuals receive the most appropriate support for their unique situation and can progress positively. “I was struggling with sleep and relaxation, which was making me feel anxious.
