We are investing £675m over the period 2022 to 2025 in capital projects across the prison estate to improve conditions for prisoners and staff, safeguard capacity, and improve sustainability. Over the same period we are also investing £3.8bn to make significant progress in delivering 20,000 prison places. These will provide modern, safe and decent accommodation and workplaces for prisoners and staff.
