Business Plan 2024-25

Open document

This business plan describes our planned work for the coming year under our strategic objectives. The plan sets out HM Inspectorate of Prisons’ mandate and values.

I am delighted that my role as Chief Inspector of Prisons has been extended for another three years, allowing me to continue to lead my outstanding team to scrutinise independently the conditions for and treatment of detainees.

Our key priorities for 2024–25 are detailed in this business plan and will help the Inspectorate to continue to drive improvements in outcomes for detainees.

Charlie Taylor, Chief Inspector of Prisons
