Involve has won a grant from the Ministry of Justice to work with two prisons in Teesside, Kirklevington Grange and Holme House, on a project to explore what more open governance means in the prisons context and whether it supports the work of the two prisons to reduce reoffending.
Kirklevington Grange and Holme House are two of the six ‘trailblazer’ reform prisons announced earlier this year.
We will be working with the Executive Governor and the senior leadership team on a number of interlinked strands of work:
Our work will be independently evaluated and a significant element of our work will focus on sharing our learning and supporting a wider debate about the role that greater openness can play in supporting the work of prisons.
