Overview of our Services

‘A Different Sense of Time’ is a publication designed to help you find solutions to some of the challenges you may encounter while trying to find suitable regime adaptations for your growing older population.

Many older prisoners arrive with the knowledge that, because of their age, they may die in prison.  Others will struggle to navigate regimes whilst trying to manage complex health conditions in an environment that is not geared to support them.

Our portfolio of age-appropriate services, which are approved for call-off on the DPS, considers their mindset, together with the impact on an individual’s health & well-being, when developing meaningful support and enrichment activities for this growing population.  They include:

  • Achieving Better Outcomes - Staff Training
  • The Buddy Support Worker Training Programme
  • Healthy Eating & Living in Prison (HELP)
  • Day Centres
  • Day Centre DIY Toolkit
  • Transition 50+ Resettlement
  • Distraction Packs
  • Consultancy - Reflecting on Age

Our services are tailored to meet this very different sense of time and a copy can be downloaded here.
