How to apply
What happens next
If you get parole you’ll be kept under supervision, known as being ‘on licence’ or probation. You may be released or transferred to an open prison, sometimes known as ‘open conditions’. Open conditions have lower security than closed prisons, and you won’t be locked up in a cell.
Your case will be reviewed again within 2 years if you don’t get parole.
