Covid-19 Update: In line with the government rules we are sorry to announce that there will be no visits at HMP Doncaster until further notice. We know how difficult this is but these measures are being taken for everyone’s safety and security.

HMP Doncaster is a category B local resettlement prison situated in South Yorkshire, operated by Serco.

Doncaster houses a male population of up to 1145 individuals, approximately 200 of whom are young offenders aged 18-20.

As a resettlement prison we work with our prisoners, particularly those serving less than 12-months, to ensure that they have the support they need for resettlement as well as access to the services and support available to them after release. The majority of our prisoners are released back into South Yorkshire.

Most of our population comes from the local South Yorkshire area, particularly Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley. HMP & YOI Doncaster also houses young offenders from West Yorkshire.
