HMP and YOI Ashfield
HMP & YOI Ashfield is a managed Young Offenders Institution caring for 400 male juveniles aged 15yrs to 18yrs. The prison cares for young people from over 120 sentencing courts covering the South West, Wales, the Midlands and the London area.
The prison opened on 1st November 1999 under a 25 year design, construct, manage and finance contract. HMP & YOI Ashfield has won several prestigious awards recognising the exceptional staff and young peoples' work. As well as operational staff, personnel include teachers, caseworkers and psychologists, healthcare and facilities management.
The prison provides a broad and balanced curriculum and seeks to provide an excellent learning environment within a custodial setting. All the young people receive at least 27 hours of education per week. They are assessed to establish their levels in literacy and numeracy and then placed accordingly into classes for mathematics, English, life skills, IT, music and art.
HMP and YOI Ashfield assess all juvenile offenders' right from the start of their sentence as part of a resettlement programme considering all aspects of the juvenile's life. We currently run specific resettlement programmes, namely a forklift driver course and community service volunteering.
HMP and YOI Ashfield has been described as "one of the best juvenile establishments in the country".
