Abstract

Inside innovation is a pilot programme dedicated to fostering social enterprise amongst Prison Service staff. This article provides on overview of the projects at HMP Downview and HMP Wandsworth. It draws on the findings of an evaluation by the Hallam Centre for Community Justice at Sheffield Hallam University, designed to examine the reception and impact of this Prison Service Staff focused scheme as a whole. The article presents views of those working in prisons in their own words, concerning the potential of adopting the principles of social enterprise to motivate and develop staff. The projects include a homework club set up to enable prisoners with children to be involved in their education, and a project producing training and recruitment materials for potential Prison Staff.
