 HMYOI Hindley is run by HMPS as part of the North West Prison region and the #1 governor is Mark Livingston who has been in charge since June 2016. In December 2016 it was announced that Hindley would close, but this decision was put on hold until July 2017. Since then a further move was taken to keep the establishment open, but no firm longterm decision as to its future has been taken.
