Overview

The Sentencing Council for England and Wales promotes greater consistency in sentencing, whilst maintaining the independence of the judiciary. The Council produces guidelines on sentencing for the judiciary and aims to increase public understanding of sentencing.

In 2010, the Sentencing Council replaced the Sentencing Guidelines Council (2004) and the Sentencing Advisory Panel (2004). The Lord Chief Justice is the president of the Sentencing Council. In his role he provides oversight to the Council and appoints judicial members.
