Good Practice Guides now available

Wednesday, June 28th 2017

RECOOP has been proud to manage a project, funded centrally by HMPPS, which was designed “To assess the need and ability of prisons and approved premises to adapt their regimes to meet the needs of older offenders” and we are delighted to announce the Good Practice Guides are now available.

It became apparent during the life of the project, that there was already a great deal of good work being carried out with the older population.  Despite the absence of a national policy, coupled with the economic challenges faced by the project prisons, there was a definite commitment to improve the provision of services and support to older prisoners.

We have taken our research and project development achievements, coupled with some best practice already in existence, and consolidated it into ‘Good Practice Guides’ to act as a support reference for continued use beyond the life of the project.

HMPPS will be sending these out to key contacts within your organisation, but if you would like a copy, please send us an email:  info@recoop.org.uk, with your name and address and we will post one to you.  Electronic copies are also available.
