What happens when you ask prisoners and prison staff to imagine a prison of the future? A prison, ten years from now, that builds on the learning of life in prison during the pandemic but also looks to a better kind of prison, a prison that really pays attention to the needs of both the individuals within it, and the wider society to which those individuals will return.
Woolfsite is a 'podcast from the future', made using interviews with prisoners and prison staff from HMP Hewell's Growth Team, conducted in the first half of 2021. It was recorded and edited before the recent release of the Government's new Prisons Strategy White Paper (December 2021) available for download here
We encourage you to listen to Woolfsite, and engage with the public consultation on the White Paper (deadline for responses is 4 February 2022)
