UIN HL2525, tabled on 12 October 2015

As of 25 September 2015, 79.8% of offenders aged 18 and over within three months of the end of their sentence are in resettlement prisons in the correct contract package area (CPA).


Subject to capacity, every effort is made to ensure we release the maximum number of all offenders from prison into the community where the offender is likely to resettle most successfully.
