Our stakeholder survey

Every year we run a survey to find out what our stakeholders think of the work we have carried out in the last 12 months. All the information stakeholders provide is treated as anonymous and confidential. After the survey, the findings are analysed by our research team and shared with our Corporate Governance Board. They may also be used in our strategic business planning.

Through the survey, we can gather the views of a range of stakeholders. Stakeholders might work in these roles or settings:

  • Directly with offenders, prisoners or detainees
  • In prisons or other places of detention
  • In managing services for offenders or detainees (e.g. escort, health, education)
  • On criminal justice or immigration policy

You might also be a stakeholder if you:

  • Work for another inspectorate, an ombudsman or a regulator
  • Work or volunteer for an independent monitoring body (e.g. IMB, ICV)
  • Are an academic, researcher or student
  • Are or have been a prisoner or detainee
  • Are a family member or friend of a prisoner or detainee.
