Prison no 3

My third Prison visit in 8 days. At Coldingley, which is a men’s prison, the Governor is Jo Sims and they have amazing facilities for education and employment for the prisoners, the latter including a large engineering workshop with a lot of equipment and a large printing facility with both producing products  for external commercial customers. Over 95% of the prisoners are gainfully employed. Very impressive as is the statistic that in a recent Inspection 76% of the prisoners said “they had hope”. Coldingley truly is a REFORM prison.
