It Doesn’t Have To Be Like This

Life in most prisons is still a very long way from what anyone would consider “normal”, but the Ministry of Justice and HMPPS are actively considering what life in prison should be like in the future. There is little consensus in this debate which, as yet, has not been opened up for the formal consultation that is certainly required. We hope this report will help set the context for that wider consultation – it is not a substitute for it.

With this in mind, Prison Reform Trust (PRT) consulted with members of its Prisoner Policy Network (PPN) to explore what a future regime might look like.
