A summary of evidence relating to the impact of mindfulness on people in prison and on probation has been published and can be found at the following link; <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/mindfulness-in-prison-and-probation" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/mindfulness-in-prison-and-probation</a> In addition to this, HMPPS Wales commissioned 2 studies in 2016 evaluating the impact of a mindfulness intervention at HMP Parc, Wales and within the National Probation Service Wales. Both staff and offenders took part in these studies. The research was led by Swansea University and the full reports, alongside a report from findings in the community, will be published later this year.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Our work on mindfulness is just part of our efforts to reduce recidivism and improve the prison estate. Over the past 3 years, we have invested £100m to provide additional Prison Officers to improve frontline safety, security and rehabilitation.</p>

Similar work is being done at a national level looking across all prisons.</p><p>Too many people self-harm in prisons and we are taking action to stop it. We are investing £100 million in security measures to tackle the drugs, weapons and mobile phones that fuel violence and self-harm behind bars – this is on top of the £70 million we have already spent improving safety and conditions. We have recruited more than 4,300 new prison officers and introduced the keyworker model - so every inmate can have a dedicated officer for support.</p><p>We’ve also given the Samaritans £1.5 million over three years, trained more than 24,000 staff in mental health awareness, and improved support for anyone at risk of suicide or self-harm.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are clear that sentencing must match the severity of a crime and public protection is our priority. The Sentencing Bill, announced in the Queens Speech, will contain a range of measures targeted at the most serious violent and sexual offenders to ensure their punishment reflects the severity of their crimes. It will also contain proposals for community penalties that offer an appropriate level of punishment, while tackling the underlying drivers of offending. While custody should be available as a last resort, if we are to break the cycle of reoffending, solutions will often lie in community sentences, including those which address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, or provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p><p> </p><p>We remain committed to the vision and aims set out in our Female Offender Strategy (June 2018); which aims to see fewer women in custody. There is persuasive evidence that many women, particularly on short custodial sentences, can be better supported in the community on robust and effective community sentences. Where a woman needs to be in custody, we want to provide rehabilitative regimes specifically tailored to women’s needs to break the reoffending cycle. However, we know that for many vulnerable women, with the right support at the right time, there are opportunities to prevent them from entering the criminal justice system at all. Publication of the Strategy was the start of a new and significant programme of work to deliver better outcomes for female offenders that will take some years to deliver.</p><p> </p><p>Lord Farmer’s review, The Importance of Strengthening Female Offenders' Family and other Relationships to Prevent Reoffending and Reduce Intergenerational Crime, continued his work on the importance of family ties in improving outcomes for offenders, by looking at the issues for female offenders in the community and custody. We welcome the findings and recommendations of the review and we are committed to taking this important area of work forward. The 33 recommendations cover a number of Government departments, and officials are working at pace to see how we can best give effect to them in both the short and longer term. We have accepted Lord Farmer’s recommendation for this work to be embedded into joint policy and operational Family Strategy Working Group (FWSG), which is already taking forward implementation of the original Farmer Review. We are reporting to Lord Farmer with progress on a quarterly basis.</p>
