UK's Prison Education Contracts are finally settled

The process of alotting education providers to the UK’s various clusters of prisons has finally drawn to a close, and the results signal important changes for our charity. Our partner in provision, People Plus, has more than doubled its range of provision, to 22 prisons in total. Unfortunately, the one prison that has moved in the opposite direct, into the hands of another provider – HMP Whitemoor – was one where the Crito Project had been teaching since 2017, and had built up good relationships and a bright and talented student body.

The change does mean, however, that new partnerships with new Governors are there to be made, and we’re hugely excited by the prospect of teaching at new sites such as HMP Norwich and HMP Highpoint.
