This includes the deaths of those being supervised after release from custody. Probation providers report annually to Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service on the numbers of deaths and their causes, and share learning points from the reviews that they have conducted. A small number of deaths under post-release supervision, including those that occur in Approved Premises, are independently investigated by the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.</p><p> </p><p>The number of offenders who died under supervision increased from 704 in 2010/11 to 955 in 2017/18. The Offender Rehabilitation Act (ORA) was introduced on 1 February 2015 and resulted in an increase in the number of offenders on post-release supervision.

While probation staff do everything they can to help offenders find access to vital services including healthcare, housing, and treatment for drug and alcohol problems, they do not have sole responsibility for caring for them.
