In April 2022 we introduced Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to drive improvements in outcomes by measuring progress with annually published performance ratings for each prison, as set out in the Prisons Strategy White Paper. This is a strategy to cut crime and protect the public with a modern, secure prison estate designed to rehabilitate prisoners. The KPIs will be published in due course.
