Earlier this year, the Lord Chancellor asked officials to consider options for the Discharge Grant, and to contact stakeholders during the wider review of the discharge policy (Prison Service Instruction (PSI) 72/2011).

The review of the PSI and the Discharge Grant is ongoing and preliminary discussions have been held with Clinks and Switchback. Further consultation with stakeholders will take place in due course.
