This report outlines the key findings of the first consultation undertaken with the Prison Policy Network (PPN) as well as some emerging issues for wider debate. 
The PPN was launched in July 2018 as part of the Prison Reform Trust’s strategic objective to give prisoners a stronger influence in how policy on prisons is made. It is an emerging network of current serving prisoners, ex-prisoners and connected organisations who are interested to share their experiences and ideas with policy makers. The PPN aims to share the views of people with experience of living in prison with those involved in prison policy development nationally through research, consultation and reports.
