star this property answer text <p>Minimising and Managing Physical Restraint (MMPR) has been specifically developed for use by staff working with children and young people in custody. It has been designed so that physical restraint is avoided as far as possible by recognising young people’s behaviour, and by using a range of de-escalation, diversion and behaviour management techniques to help them deal with it effectively and appropriately. MMPR was initially used in secure training centres, and is now being operationally used by the Youth Justice Board’s secure escort provider, who escort children to and from court, secure training centres, and secure children’s homes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to improving the support that we offer to prisoners at risk of self-harm or suicide. We expect the most important and effective measures to be the investment of £100 million for recruitment of 2,500 new staff, and the introduction of new offender management arrangements in prisons under which each key worker will have particular responsibility for a small number of prisoners. These will greatly enhance the time and resources available to support prisoners who are at risk.</p><p> </p><p>New training is being rolled out across the estate to support our staff to identify the risks and triggers of suicide and self-harm and understand what they can do to support prisoners at risk. The new training package consists of six sections including awareness training for staff on supporting prisoners with mental health issues.</p><p> </p><p>We have put in place specialist roles (regional safer custody leads) in every region to provide advice to prisons and to spread good practice on identifying and supporting prisoners at risk. We are using experts – including providing extra funding for the Samaritans to provide targeted support for prison staff and to prisoners directly.</p><p> </p><p>Other measures are being developed as part of our safety programme, which includes specific strands of work on the early days in custody; the case management of prisoners at risk; improvements to the built environment of prisons; and building hopefulness amongst prisoners, including through family and peer support.</p><p> </p><p><em>Older Prisoners</em></p><p>Elderly and frail prisoners receive support from NHS clinical services and local authority social care, as well as from prison officers. All staff are trained to appropriate professional standards for their contribution to care. Supporting elderly prisoners is covered in entry-level prison officer training. Prison officers are provided with guidance on dementia and also receive advice and guidance from occupational therapists and social workers at a local level. We are working closely with clinical leaders and social care services to improve our understanding of the impacts of dementia across prisons.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently working to improve our knowledge about the particular health and social needs of older prisoners so we can determine how we might meet these requirements. We have set up a working group to explore this issue. This work will include taking expert advice on what changes we might need to make to the estate or to the regime.</p><p> </p><p><em>Indeterminate Sentence Prisoners beyond tariff</em></p><p>The release of prisoners serving indeterminate sentences of Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) who have completed their tariff is a matter for the independent Parole Board.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS is focused on giving IPP prisoners the support, opportunities and motivation they need to progress more quickly when they are reviewed by the Parole Board so that they have the best possible prospect for securing release. HMPPS and the Parole Board have implemented a joint action plan, the purpose of which is to deliver further improvements and efficiencies in the effort to help IPP prisoners progress towards release.</p>

We know that offenders serving short sentences often have long offending histories, as well as multiple and complex needs. In cases of the most persistent offenders, the evidence shows they are 36% more likely to re-offend where they have received a short custodial sentence rather than a court order. Community penalties can address underlying behaviour, answer mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not currently hold the data as requested.</p><p> </p><p>Based on matched MOJ-DWP data on the proportion of working age adult offenders released from prison in 2011/12 who were in P45 employment one year after release we know that there is no difference in P45 employment rates over a one year period for those serving sentences of fewer or greater than 12 months.</p><p> </p><p>For those serving custodial sentences of <strong>fewer than 12 months</strong>;</p><p> </p><ul><li>17% were in P45 employment one year after release from prison</li></ul><p> </p><p>And for those serving custodial sentences of <strong>greater than 12 months</strong>;</p><p> </p><ul><li>17% were in P45 employment one year after release from prison</li></ul><p> </p><p>More recent data from 2014/15 indicates that at a national level, 26.5% of prisoners were entering employment upon release, but this data was self-reported and we don’t have a split in this rate for length of sentence served.</p><p> </p><p>Securing employment after a sentence has a positive impact on rates of reoffending. Offenders who found P45 employment in the twelve months after release from prison had one year re-offending rates that were 6-9 percentage points lower than similar offenders who did not find employment.</p><p> </p><p>That is why we have launched the Education and Employment Strategy. The strategy will create a system in which each prisoner is set on a path to employment from the outset, with prison education and work geared towards employment on release.</p><p> </p><p>Our strategy includes a range of initiatives to support this ambition. For example, we will empower governors to commission education provision that leads to work, we will engage and persuade employers to take on ex-prisoners via the New Futures Network (NFN) and we will consult governors and employers on proposals to increase the opportunities available to prisoners to gain experience in real workplaces through Release On Temporary Licence.</p>
