TC is a voluntary process. Prisoners have to want to come to TC. They apply by filling in an application pack (available to download) and returning it to the Referral team at HMP Dovegate, usually via their Offender Supervisor. Once the pack is received, supporting information is requested. Once this is received the packs are reviewed by a multi-disciplinary team. If a prisoner is accepted for assessment he will be transferred to the TC. If the prisoner is not accepted for assessment he will be notified of the reasons why.
Once a prisoner has been accepted he may be transferred to the TC within a couple of weeks.
Information and referral packs can be obtained from the Referrals team at HMP Dovegate.
