Default HMP Ashwell



HMP Ashwell


This prison is now closed.
Ashwell prison is situated some 1.5 miles from Oakham in Rutland. It first opened in 1955 as an Open Prison for short-term and medium-term Adult Prisoners. In October 1987, after erection of a fence, it was converted to a Cat C prison.

The site, previously an Army camp, extends to about 10 hectares.



Following a major riot on 11th April 2009, in 2011, it was announced that the prison was to close, as the cost of repairing and maintaining the building was too high. The prison formally closed at the end of March 2011, when all inmates were transferred to other prisons. As of yet the future of the site is yet to be determined.

HMP YOI / BRINSFORD





A modern establishment designed and constructed in a single phase on a green field site acquired from the Ministry of Defence.

In 2008 an additional residential unit and activity centre were built which has increased the population and the range and quantity of vocational training available. This has resulted in a reduction of young people places and increase in sentenced young adult places.

Default HMP Brixton



HMP BRIXTON

Governor: Edmond Tullett

The original buildings date from 1819. In 1862 the prison was sold to the Government and converted into a prison for females. Twenty years later it was again converted, this time as a military prison, and in 1898, when it was returned to the Prison Commissioners, the buildings were enlarged and improved and made the trial and remand prison for the whole of the London area. The prison now serves a number of courts in South London and houses a mixture of remand and sentenced prisoners.

Address:Jebb Avenue

Brixton
London
SW2 5XF
Tel: 020 8588 6000
Fax: 020 8588 6283


Operational capacity: 798 as of 24th August 2008
Accommodation: Four main residential units, plus health care. A wing houses 264 prisoners in 143 cells (mostly doubled, 1 for disabled), B wing houses prisoners in 86 cells some doubled. C wing houses prisoners in 69 cells (all doubled, 1 for disabled), and operates primarily as a first night centre and VP unit. G wing houses prisoners in 151 cells, 61 doubled, 1 for disabled, and cares for those with substance misuse issues. We currently run Substance Misuse interventions from G wing which operates as part of the national IDTS scheme. D wing has a 26 bed in-patient facility concentrating on acute mental health care.

Reception criteria: HMP Brixton's primary role is to serve the local magistrates courts, Inner London and Southwark Crown Courts, holding remand and trial prisoners committed to these courts. Convicted prisoners have an initial interview and are then categorised and allocated to another prison with facilities appropriate to that sentence and prisoner's needs.

Regime: Exercise periods vary according to the wing and its function. There is an IEP scheme in operation. Prisoners can pursue a range of education courses. There are a variety of classes covering areas such as IT, English, Maths, Social and Life Skills and a varied art programme. Most courses lead to nationally recognised qualifications. All take place in a newly refurbished Learning and Skills centre. The gym offers a range of PE and accredited programmes. There are no traditional workshops.
A new Kitchen is currently being built and plans are in discussion to replace the Reception, Healthcare, & Sports complex.

Default HMP Buckley Hall




Buckley Hall

Buckley Hall was, at its reopening, the fourth contracted out prison in the UK, and the first privately managed Cat C establishment holding medium security prisoners. Group 4 Prison Services operated it but after a tendering process in June 2000 the establishment reverted to Prison Service control. The establishment is managed under a Service Level Agreement monitored by the Compliance Monitor, reporting to the Regional Offender Manager, CCU and the Area Manager. In November 2001 it was announced that the prison would re-role to a closed female training prison. The first female prisoners arrived in April 2002. As a result of population pressures in the male estate, it was decided to re-role the establishment back to a male category C prison in September 2005. The male prisoners began arriving on December 5th 2005.

HMP Camp Hill is a closed category C training prison holding adult men on short, medium and long term sentences.

HMP Isle of Wight
HMP The Isle of Wight was officially launched on 1st April 2009 and is the organisational amalgamation of the former HMP's Albany, Camp Hill, and Parkhurst. The prison holds approximately 1700 prisoners on the 3 sites with a central administration. The current populations remain unaltered. Camp Hill category C training, Albany category B sex offenders, Parkhurst category B training – with 50% cat B lifer and 50% VP population.
The prison's ambition is to become recognised as having a 4 star custodial reputation, as measured by the NOMS performance categorisation.
The prison is organised around the concept that our work is based on the individual relationship between a member of staff and a prisoner. Each site is lead by a Head of regime who coordinates residence, safer custody and activities. Central security and offender management are clustered to gain from economies of scale.
