HMP Berwyn opened in February 2017 and has a current role as a training prison designed to hold sentenced, category C, adult males. As part of the training function the prison delivers a wide range of rehabilitative and educational courses and activities which enable prisoners to gain essential skills as they work towards their release. Although a wide variety of interventions are provided at Berwyn, there is no rehabilitative provision for men convicted of sexual offences. As such, as at Friday 12 October, of the 1,189 prisoners held at HMP Berwyn, none were serving a sentence for a current sexual offence.
