Equality and diversity

Equality and diversity policies for HMPPS and details of how equality and diversity are monitored.

Equality objectives

Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service is committed to treating all people fairly. We treat our staff with respect and offer equal opportunities to everyone we work with. We insist on respectful and polite behaviour from staff, those in our care and others who we work with. We recognise that discrimination, harassment and bullying can still happen and we take quick and appropriate action whenever we find them.

More information on our equality objectives is available at the Ministry for Justice and in our current business plan.

Equality annual reports and reviews

We publish two equality reports each year, one on staff and one on those in our care, describing the work we have done to meet our equalities objectives. These reports also contribute to our meeting the specific requirements in the Equality Act 2010.

The staff equalities information was previously an annex to the annual MOJ diversity and inclusion report

The National Offender Management Service had a working Equality Strategy 2015 to 2017, this will be updated with the HMPPS whole system equality strategy running from 2017 onwards which will be published during 2017. This will fit with the MoJ inclusion and diversity strategy.
