star this property answer text <p>The table provides the rates of incidents of self-harm and self-inflicted deaths per 1,000 prisoners for the 12 month period to September 2018. On average, those who self-harmed did so 4.4 times, although a small number of prolific self-harmers have a disproportionate effect on this figure. The majority of those who self-harm in prison do so only once a year.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is taking unprecedented action to improve safety in prisons, including redoubling our efforts to prevent self-inflicted deaths and to reduce the levels of self-harm. We have recruited over 4,700 more prison officers since October 2016, and we now have the greatest number in post since early 2012. This is allowing us to implement the key worker role, allowing staff dedicated time to provide support to individual prisoners.</p><p> </p><p>We are improving support for prisoners in their early days in custody and working to improve the multi-disciplinary ACCT case management process for those at risk of suicide or self-harm.</p><p>We have rolled out a revised and improved Introduction to Suicide and Self-harm Prevention course. This is being completed by all new staff and as refresher training by all existing staff. Nearly 25,000 staff have already begun this training and over 14,000 have completed all six modules.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Attending an accredited offending behaviour programme (OBP) in custody is voluntary, meaning there are not any automatic sanctions for non-attendance. Prisoners who exhibit unacceptable behaviours whilst involved in a programme will face standard disciplinary procedures. Removal from programmes, however, can also take place due to behaviour unrelated to participation in a programme. Sanctions can be implemented through the adjudication process or in relation to Incentives and Earned Privileges (IEP). In order to collect the information requested a matching exercise using prison population and adjudication databases would be required to identify each individual prisoner who was punished under the Prison Rules. As a result, the data could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>Accredited Programmes can also be part of a Community Sentence or a Licence Condition, in which case offenders can be breached or recalled to custody for not being compliant. Data relating to breach and recall in these specific instances is not available and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department has undertaken several outcome evaluations of accredited offending behaviour programmes, and further evaluations are currently underway. In 2018 we invested in new resources to address the backlog in evaluations. Impact evaluations may not be suitable for all accredited programmes due to the low volume of participants. In these circumstances other types of evaluations are undertaken, for example studies to assess whether delivery is in line with the evidence.</p><p> </p><p>All accredited programmes are assessed against a set of principles which are drawn from the evidence base about what works and considered against the latest thinking internationally. All programmes are subject to evaluation, but this can take many years due to the sample sizes required to meet academic standards.</p><p> </p><p>It is the Secretary of State’s policy to make accredited offending behaviour programmes available to people convicted of crime. An evaluation plan must be submitted in order to achieve initial accreditation and the evaluation results must be provided to achieve reaccreditation (usually after 5 years). Accreditation also requires that the programme is designed based on the best available evidence, and that robust monitoring of practice is in place.</p><p> </p><p>Research has shown that HMPPS programmes, when properly targeted, can reduce reoffending by 8 percentage points, and up to 17 percentage points for violent offenders.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A wide range of accredited programmes are available for prisoners to attend where they are identified as suitable. Referrals for courses and volumes delivered are kept under review and suitability for any accredited programmes will be considered as part of a prisoner’s wider sentence plan. We always try to ensure that courses are available to prisoners at a suitable time in their sentence. In particular, we prioritise indeterminate sentence prisoners for courses to ensure that Parole Board recommendations can be implemented as soon as practicable. However, the completion of accredited programmes is not a mandatory requirement to secure release.</p><p> </p><p>It is for the independent Parole Board to review the detention of parole eligible prisoners. The Board will direct the release of these prisoners only if it is satisfied that the levels of risk posed to the general public are reduced enough that the National Probation Service and its partner agencies can safely manage them in the community under supervision. Prisoners are managed using a sentence plan which contains interventions that have been identified to help them to address the risks that they pose. Management of the sentence plan is a matter for HMPPS and not the Parole Board. The Parole Board will consider how interventions identified by HMPPS, and undertaken by prisoners, have impacted on the levels of risk posed by individuals.</p><p> </p><p>Information relating to Parole Board recommendations is not held centrally and could not be obtained without incurring disproportionate costs.</p><p> </p><p>While HMPPS is focused on giving all prisoners opportunities to progress towards release, public protection must remain our priority.</p>
