unstar this property answer text <p>Privately-managed prisons have pioneered the use of modern technology to improve the running of establishments and help promote rehabilitation. This includes the development of in-cell telephony to help prisoners maintain ties with their families; interactive story-time activities between prisoners and their children; and the introduction of electronic kiosks, which allow prisoners to have greater control of managing their day-to-day lives. The use of body-worn video cameras was introduced by private prisons. Private prisons also have excellent facilities as standard, such as showers in cells, which it is not possible to provide in our older prisons.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

Table B breaks this down by local authority. The majority of this funding helps support the day-to-day business of Youth Offending Teams (YOTs), but it also includes some discrete additional grants for specific projects or initiatives, for example funding for restorative justice. The annual recorded value of the additional grants is set out in Table C.</p><p> </p><p>Due to a change in reporting processes the additional grants given in 2014/15 and 2015/16 were not included in the published totals in the 2017/18 youth justice statistics.

unstar this property answer text <p>HM Prison &amp; Probation Service (HMPPS) is committed to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of its staff, with all staff having access to a comprehensive occupational health service and employee assistance programme.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS continuously monitors and re-assesses the support and interventions in place for staff. To this end HMPPS changed its delivery model for employee assistance services (EAP) and the new EAP model has significantly enhanced and changed access to the help and support previously available to HMPPS staff and includes specialist Trauma Support and a manager’s helpline amongst other services. The model also enables staff to self-refer for counselling by calling the 24 hour helpline in complete confidentiality.</p><p> </p><p>The number of working days that band 3-5 officers lost due to mental and behavioural disorders is provided in table 1 below.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 1: Band 3-5 officer<sup>1</sup> working days lost due to mental &amp; behavioural disorders<sup>2</sup>, 2009/10 to 2017/18</strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Financial year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Working days lost due to mental &amp; behavioural disorders</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Percent of known sickness reasons<sup>4</sup></strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009/10</p></td><td><p>60,697</p></td><td><p>21.0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010/11</p></td><td><p>57,794</p></td><td><p>22.4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>60,782</p></td><td><p>24.2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>57,895</p></td><td><p>23.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>63,209</p></td><td><p>27.0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>59,858</p></td><td><p>27.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015/16</p></td><td><p>57,807</p></td><td><p>29.4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016/17<sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>60,887</p></td><td><p>32.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017/18<sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>47,769</p></td><td><p>29.9</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><sup>1 </sup>Includes Band 3-4 / Prison Officer (incl specialists), Band 4 / Supervising Officer and Band 5 / Custodial Managers.</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><sup>2</sup> Absences are categorised according to the International Classification of Diseases, which is an approach used across the civil service.</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><sup>3</sup> Between January and March 2017, during migration of data to the Single Operating Platform, an under-recording of sickness absence records occurred.
