FAQ's



Can I get information from NAPA under the Freedom of Information Act?
No. The act requires public authorities to comply with the act but not voluntary organisations. We do however aim to be as open as we can about our organisation and the work that we do.

What are 'Approved Premises'?
'Approved Premises' are accommodation in the community for convicted prisoners upon release under licence, or those on bail, who would not be suitable to live elsewhere. They provide an enhanced level of supervision to reduce the risk of harm to the public and to maximise the opportunities for successful rehabilitation of the offender.
