Women's Estate

The POA have requested a meeting with NOMS to discuss the rationale of the Women's Estate Review.

The POA have considered the report at an Executive meeting and have a number of concerns with regard to the future direction of the female estate. Until this meeting has taken place our focus will be to support our members at HMP Askham Grange and HMP East Sutton Park.

The POA are opposed to prison closures and together with the members at the branches, will campaign to convince NOMS and Ministers that closing prisons is not the answer to an overcrowded and dysfunctional prison estate and will do nothing to rehabilitate prisoners.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
