"Locked up Potential - a strategy for reforming prisons and rehabilitating prisoners"(PDF)

Authors: The Centre for Social Justice Prison Reform Working Group, chaired by Jonathan Aitken

Publication date: March 2009

An in-depth report containing 70 policy recommendations for the reform of Britain's failing prison system. Key recommendations include localising the management of the prison system by abolishing the National Offender Management Service and replacing it with a network of Community Prison and Rehabilitation Trusts, scrapping the Titan prison programme and instead building five Mitson Academy model prisons, and making sweeping changes to prison rehabilitation to reduce re-offending.
