star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Prisons and Probation Service (HMPPS) is responsible for the delivery of prison and probation services in England and Wales. These services were first brought together with the creation of the National Offender Management Service in 2004, which became HMPPS in 2017.</p><p>In respect of determining how much money is spent and how funding is determined for prisons/probation, it should be noted that annual budget allocations are set as part of the Ministry of Justice’s annual budget allocation process and subject to any in year movements or organisation restructure changes. These allocations are made on the basis of need and according to Departmental priorities. The allocation of funds for the services provided by HMPPS is carefully planned and prioritised on a regular basis in order to ensure HMPPS is able to continue to deliver its services for all offenders sentenced by the courts for either supervision in the community or custody.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes very seriously its responsibility to keep prisoners safe, and we are committed to reducing the number of self-inflicted deaths and self-harm incidents across the estate. We know that prisoners are at increased risk during the early days in custody and in the period following a transfer between prisons. This is why, as part of our prison safety programme, we are continuing our efforts to support prisoners by:<br>• improving staff knowledge and understanding of the factors known to increase risk of self-harm, to help them to identify and respond appropriately to prisoners at risk. Our revised introduction to suicide and self-harm prevention training has already reached over 17,000 staff;<br>• improving the flow, quality and use of risk information about people coming into our prisons, to support effective decision-making about risk;<br>• renewing our partnership with Samaritans by confirming a further three years’ funding for their valuable Listeners Scheme, and working with them to share learning from the ‘Coping with Life in Prisons’ project, a successful pilot initiative in which Samaritans-trained ex-prisoners delivered emotional resilience training to groups of newly-arrived prisoners;<br>• producing an early days toolkit to help staff enhance their support for prisoners during their first few days and weeks in custody; and<br>• improving the multi-disciplinary ACCT case management process for those identified as at risk of self-harm or suicide.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The safety and security of our prisons must always take priority and action to address retention rates are being taken forward as part of the government’s plan to increase the number of prison officers by 2,500, to improve safety and security. We have already recruited 1,255 extra prison officers over the past year. Exit interviews and qualitative analysis has helped to build an understanding of why prison officers leave the Service.</p><p> </p><p>We are actively working with our prisons to drive positive change in the prisons with the highest attrition rates. This includes the appointment of 75 additional prison officer mentors to support our new staff alongside working proactively with Governors to take local action based on the common themes identified.</p><p> </p><p>We have invested in in 5,600 body-worn cameras to help protect our prison staff, alongside training to improve interactions with prisoners. These will provide high-quality evidence to support prosecutions brought against prisoners. In October, we also launched a new case management model to help staff to manage violent prisoners and those identified as posing a raised risk of being violent.</p>
