Digital Technology in Prisons: Unlocking relationships, learning and skills in UK prisons


The conditions imposed on prisoners as a result of the lockdown has exposed a preexisting problem. Prisons in England and Wales are rooted in a pre-digital age. If this is allowed to continue, our prisons will serve not as places of reform, but as drivers of exclusion, systematically denying the prison population access to education and training, and leaving them unable to work. This report argues the time has come to modernise our system – and to redress the exclusion of prisoners from the world outside the prison walls – by installing controlled broadband facilities throughout the prison estate.
