Monitoring of delivery of key work during Covid-19 recovery is undertaken by Prison Governors, Prison Group Directors and Prison Executive Directors and through internal audit functions. Independent scrutiny visits are also carried out by HM Inspectorate of Prisons, which then publishes its findings.

We are committed to ensuring that key work is reinstated fully across the male closed estate when safe to do so, and as part of recovery work.
