Welcome

Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire (BGSW) Probation Services provides services that deliver the sentence of the court, reduce the likelihood of reoffending and minimise the risk of harm to others.

We work with low and medium risk offenders who have been given a community sentence or released on licence by the courts. We manage the sentence in the community and help individuals to obtain the knowledge, skills and the support to enable them to lead a crime-free life. ​

​Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire Probation Services is operated by  Interventions Alliance, the social care and justice business division of the employee-owned Seetec Group.
