Sentencing Council New Strategy: The next five years

The Sentencing Council is launching a new strategy that will shape its work for the next five years. The strategy follows a public consultation that asked what the Council’s objectives should be for the coming years and how it should balance its priorities within the resources it has at its disposal.

The strategy identifies five objectives that will be the Council’s main priorities and the actions it will take to achieve them. Developing and revising guidelines will continue to be the core of the Council’s work. It will build on the evidence that underpins the guidelines, work to improve understanding of effectiveness of sentencing and extend its efforts to strengthen public confidence by providing more opportunities for people to find out about sentencing and how it works.

Consistent with one very strong message received from consultees, the Council has also made a commitment to place equality and diversity at the heart of all its work.

Alongside the strategy, the Council has published a response to the consultation, which sets out the Council’s thinking and the rationale behind the five objectives.
