I want to thank Martin Narey for carrying out this assessment, and for publishing the report he has written. He clearly states that, in his view, Rainsbrook is a safe place for children and young people, they are treated kindly and, with many of them, tangible progress is made towards their rehabilitation.
This report also confirms that serious incidents at Rainsbrook had been dealt with by G4S and the YJB prior to the inspection by HMI Prisons and Ofsted in February.
The YJB continues to work closely with G4S to ensure that the improvements recommended by the inspectorates are acted upon. We hope that an early re-inspection of Rainsbrook will be possible and will also confirm progress made.
