Work & Education Standford Hill

The main focus for Standford Hill is for prisoners to work out in the community, carrying out reparative work or engaging in paid employment towards the end of their sentence. Within the prison there is an education department offering a full range of learning and numerous vocational training opportunities. Much of the employment throughout the prison involves peer advisors and embeds learning where ever possible.

On Tuesday 24th March it was announced that all prisons in the UK would go into a "lock down" state, as a result on Covid19.  In simple terms it means that prisoners will be confined to their cells for the vast majority of each day, being unlocked only for meals and very limited exercise periods. All social visits are cancelled with immediate effect.

The prison staff will ensure that medical requirements will be met as per usual but there will be no "association periods" for the prisoners. Undoubtably this will be difficult and stressful for a number of prisoners, but the prison authorities are acting for the greater good of the majority of prisoners and staff.

Any establishment specific queries you may have should be directed to the prisons
