star this property answer text <p>The private sector has an important role to play, and currently runs some high-performing prisons, as part of a safe, decent and secure prison estate.</p><p>Privately managed prison performance is closely monitored by robust contract management processes. Each privately managed prison has an on-site controller, employed by HM Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS). Controllers, together with regional contract managers review performance against performance indicators set out in the contract. Any improvement action identified may include a requirement for urgent improvement and/or financial deductions.</p><p>As well as contractual performance indicators, key statistics across public protection; safety and order; and offender reform are published annually for both the private and public estate.</p><p>Privately-managed prisons are subject to the same external inspection procedures as those in the public sector. Prisons are inspected at least once every five years by HM Inspectorate of Prisons, and face regular scrutiny by their local Independent Monitoring Board. Additionally, HMPPS internal audit and assurance scrutinises private prisons to ensure they are meeting their responsibilities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The number of female offenders sentenced to custody by court level and police force area, including the metropolitan police force area, in 2017, can be found in the Court outcomes by Police Force Area data tool, which can be found at the below link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-justice-system-statistics-quarterly-december-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/criminal-justice-system-statistics-quarterly-december-2017</a></p><p> </p><p>Select the drop down boxes referring to custodial sentence length in order to establish sentence lengths. Select female from the sex drop box and, once having done this, young adults and adults to establish women. Offence classification can be found in both the Offence Type and Offence group boxes, depending on which categorisation is required here.</p><p> </p><p>Court proceedings data for 2018 are planned for publication on 16 May 2019, with data for 2019 planned for publication in May 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Our vision, as set out in our Female Offender Strategy, is to see fewer women coming into the criminal justice system and a greater proportion managed successfully in the community. To achieve this, we have invested £5m to support community provision for female offenders and women at risk of offending.</p><p> </p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p> </p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p>

We spent £1.6bn last year on legal aid for the most vulnerable – of which £545m was in family law.</p><p>Legal aid is also part of a bigger picture and so we are now making changes to enhance the breadth of legal support available for everyone in society.</p><p>The Legal Support Action Plan, published on 7 February, announced that we would be changing the legal aid eligibility criteria to provide non-means tested legal aid for parents, or those with parental responsibility, who wish to oppose applications for placement orders or adoption orders in public family law. In addition, we announced that we will doubling the department’s funding to the Litigants in Person Support Strategy to £3m for the next two years.</p> more like this
