At HMP Berwyn, there are currently 250 active requests recorded on the system that have been made by prisoners to transfer to other prisons in England and Wales. This information cannot be broken down per year as requested and includes transfer requests that remain active but:

  • The receiving prison does not accept the transfer request

  • The transfer cannot be made due to restrictions, or

  • The prisoner changes their mind.

All of the above stay as active request in the Offender Management department at HMP Berwyn until either a transfer to another prison occurs or the prisoner is released.

Does this answer the above question?
