Life after prison

Prisons need to support offenders to prepare for their release, working together with probation and with other services that support the transition through the gate.

Audits and inspections are reported on a 4-point scale, from 1 (lowest rating) to 4 (highest rating).

Visit prisons and probation statistics for data sources and more details.


An independent assessment by HMIP of the level to which prisoners are prepared for release into the community, and helped to reduce the likelihood of reoffending.
