star this property answer text <p>The information requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost as central records are not kept for all aspects of the management of prisoners sentenced to an indeterminate sentence of Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP).</p><p> </p><p>HM Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) and the Parole Board will continue to work together to improve the progression of IPP prisoners. This group continue to achieve release in high numbers, with 576 first time IPP releases in 2016, the highest figure since the sentence was introduced.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS will continue to invest in interventions to assist prisoners to both reduce their risk and demonstrate such progression to the Parole Board. However, it is important to remember that it is not mandatory for IPPs to complete accredited offending behaviour programmes in order to achieve release. Completing an accredited offending behaviour programme is one way in which IPP prisoners may demonstrate that they have reduced their risk of harm and reoffending; other options may include work and employment, education and one to one work with psychologists or prison offender supervisors.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Under international law, the United Kingdom has undertaken to comply with the European Convention on Human Rights. The Human Rights Act 1998 gives further effect in domestic law to certain rights and freedoms drawn from the Convention, called the Convention rights. Section 6(1) of the Act makes it unlawful for a public authority to act in a way which is incompatible with a Convention right. Under section 6(3), “public authority” is defined as including a court or tribunal, and “any person certain of whose function are functions of a public nature”; but does not include either House of Parliament or a person exercising functions in connection with proceedings in Parliament. Section 73(2) of the Care Act 2011 additionally specifies that a provider of regulated care and support that has been arranged or paid for by a local authority or Health and Social Care trust is also to be taken as exercising a function of a public nature for the purposes of the Human Rights Act. Any allegation that a public authority has acted incompatibly with a Convention right may be brought to court as specified in section 7 of the Act.</p><p> </p><p>Guidelines produced by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe are not legally binding.</p>

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.

star this property answer text <p>At the end of March this year, there were just over 13,000 prisoners over the age of 50 in England and Wales, being 16% of the total prison population. This represents a 5% increase since March 2016 and 40% since March 2012.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently working to enhance our knowledge about the particular health and social needs of older prisoners so we can determine how we might meet these requirements. We have therefore set up a working group to explore this issue. This work will include taking on expert advice on what changes we might need to make to the estate or to the regime.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Privately managed prisons (PMPs) are required to comply with Prison Service Instruction 2/2012 (Prisoner Complaints). This policy requires each establishment to have in place an accessible complaints system that is an effective outlet for dealing with complaints and concerns fairly and humanely. PMPs are also required to comply with PSI 15/2015 (Adult Social Care) in relation to complaints about healthcare provision.</p><p> </p><p>The complaints process in each of the PMPs is advertised and widely used by prisoners. If a prisoner remains unsatisfied with the response within the prison to concerns raised through local procedures, they can also raise a complaint with the Prison and Probation Ombudsman.</p><p> </p><p>The complaints process is closely monitored by HMPPS Controllers to ensure compliance.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Re-offending rates in youth justice are high, and the outcomes for young people leaving custody are not good enough. That is why we set out our plans to reform youth custody in response to Charlie Taylor’s youth justice review last December, so that it is better equipped to help young people turn their lives around and play a constructive role in their communities upon their release, away from re-offending.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to engage with key stakeholders and consider their recommendations as this work progresses.</p>
