Our aim is to give prisoners a strong work ethic which reflects what is expected in a business environment.
Prisoners at HMP Rye Hill work for 6 hours per day, 30 hours a week in a range of activities that requires them to be both self-reliant and part of a team. Most of our prisoners achieve personal satisfaction from the responsibility they are given and are pleased to be involved as peer trainers, inductors, quality control inspectors and health and safety monitors. Training is given by the suppliers to attain the necessary standards, output and quality demanded by individual contracts.
There are four workshops each employing between 20 and 80 prisoners. Within these areas a variety of work is undertaken for outside companies, all of whom have been delighted by the quality and consistency of the workforce and their attitude to work.
Examples of the work we currently do are set out below:
- Production of hair nets for the hygiene industry
- Electronic component and emergency lighting unit assembly
- General and specialist packing
- Manufacturing of UPVC Windows
- Woodworking – producing Garden products and bespoke items
- Sheet metal packaging
