Event description

Description

The HMPPS Studio would like to welcome you for an open day on Wednesday 24th April.

Established in 2016, the Studio works to give time back to our front line staff and show how prisons can be truly rehabilitative spaces.

The Studio was set up to challenge the status quo in the prisons and probation space: ageing technology and equipment, legacy databases and poor service provision that make people’s lives - at work as well as behind bars - even more difficult.

In the last two years, we have delivered:

  • Brilliant basics - modernising ageing equipment, making services robust, reliable and better for users

  • Simple, modern, digital services designed by and for users

  • Innovative products for prison environments - in-cell education capability for offenders, handheld devices for prison officers, and modern tools deployed in probation which have been used over 2.5m times in the first 2 months.

  • Savings - building digital capability and moving technology into the cloud (saving over £10m last year, with more to come)

This event will focus on the products and services we are busy developing for frontline staff.

Colleagues working in prisons and probation are especially welcome!

This event may also be of interest to

  • Tech and digital folk interested in our work across probation and prisons - we are hiring! We are always looking to meet prospective Developers, Delivery Managers, Business Analysts, User Researchers, Designers and Product Managers

  • Those working in the civil service already, who want to learn more about what we do

  • Related organisations in South Yorkshire and beyond - across education, rehabilitation, addiction and others - we’d love to meet you

  • Any Sheffield-based organisation looking to learn more about digital capability in the city


Light refreshments will be provided.

The Studio is entirely wheelchair accessible.
