The Incentives Policy Framework mandates that forums must be in place to review the fairness and effectiveness of the local incentives policy, including the efficacy of the incentives on offer. It also confirms that they must involve staff and prisoners, including all prisoner groups with protected characteristics where present in the local population.

All prisons either have a specific forum in place to discuss the incentives policy or facilitate the opportunity to do so through other methods. The capacity for such forums to take place has been reduced during the pandemic, however, as the majority of Covid restrictions within prisons are being removed regular operation is returning.
