The Intensive Alternatives to Custody (IAC) pilot programme ran from 2008-09 to 2010-11. Since the pilot ended Wales Probation have mainstreamed provision of IAC across all local delivery units in Wales. IAC remains available as a sentencing option for all criminal courts in Wales and this will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.
