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). HMIP inspections are up to date as of September 2017. Other measures have data for financial years up to March 2017, and where available, additional notes on the first half of 2017/18.
