star this property answer text <p>As set out in our 2016 White Paper on Prison Safety and Reform, we are committed to giving prisoners the support and help they need to maintain and strengthen family ties.</p><p> </p><p>Lord Farmer was commissioned to undertake a review of family engagement, and to make proposals that will augment the Prison Safety and Reform agenda. The Ministry of Justice will consider his findings in due course.</p><p> </p><p>Visits, where appropriate, by children to their parent in prison are central to maintaining the relationship during the sentence. Ethos, statutory entitlement and practices are detailed in secondary legislation and in Prison Service Instructions, as follows:</p><p> </p><p>Prison Rules 1999, Rule 4 - ‘Outside Contacts‘, requires Governors to encourage and assist prisoners to maintain relations with persons and agencies outside of the prison which may, in the opinion of the Governor, best promote the interests of his family and own social rehabilitation. Rule 35 ‘Personal Letters and Visits’ sets out the statutory entitlement to visits and Governors may allow an additional privilege under Rule 8.</p><p> </p><p>Prison Service Instruction 16/2011 ‘Providing Visits and Services to Visitors’ sets out, among other things, guidelines to prisons on the management of family visits.</p><p> </p><p>Prison Governors are accountable for the safeguarding and welfare of children during prison visits. This is set out through the statutory framework under the Children Act 2004. Prison Service Instruction 15/2011 ‘Management of Security at Visits’ requires social visits to be conducted in a manner which ensures the safeguarding of children and provides arrangements for this.</p><p>Prisoners can earn additional visits by demonstrating good behaviour and commitment to their rehabilitation; this is detailed in Prison Service Instruction 30/2013 ‘Incentives and Earned Privileges’.</p>

Whilst requirements differ by programme, an individual does not need to admit to the offence(s) for which they have been convicted, but must be willing to address and work on the issues and factors in their life that constitute risk factors for them.</p><p> </p><p>When considering whether to direct the release of IPP prisoners, the independent Parole Board considers evidence from a range of sources and not just completed programmes. Where the Parole Board does not direct the release of an IPP prisoner, it is concluding that the prisoner’s risk to the public is too great for him to be safely managed in the community.</p>
