Get involved

The Sentencing Council has a legal duty to involve the public in its work. In this section you can find out more about how to get involved in the development of sentencing guidelines for different offences and let the Sentencing Council know your views. The Council produces several guidelines every year and for each, a public consultation is held, with all information published on this site.

In this section you can also look back at previous public consultations and see what action we have taken as a result to amend guidelines before they come into force.

You will also find  information for victims and can try sentencing for yourself with the interactive court experience of You Be the Judge
