This toolkit is designed for prison governors and staff to review and improve prisoner involvement systems. Prisoner involvement is a key part of running an effective prison. Giving prisoners the opportunity to give their views and contribute through representative systems like wing meetings and prison councils and through consultations has many benefits. It can deal with issues before they become a problem, and can improve staff and prisoner relations. It gives prisoners a voice and develops their skills. Playing an active role in their community and taking on a measure of responsibility can assist in the journey away from crime.
