We work with HM Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) and other inspectorates to protect and promote the interests and rights of people who use health and social care services in secure settings.
- health and social care in prisons and young offender institutions (prisons for young people aged 15-21)
- healthcare in immigration removal centres (holding centres for detainees awaiting decisions on their residency status or deportation following an unsuccessful application)
- police custody facilities.
