Good practice in peer-led information services in prison

The Prison Reform Trust has published a ‘Peer-led information service toolkit’, which collates examples of good practice in developing peer-led information services in prisons and provides a step by step toolkit for setting one up. The toolkit outlines the benefits of a peer-led information service, such as encouraging transparency within prisons and allowing prisoners to gain an understanding of the prison’s systems. It presents a range of different models for the service and then provides a series of steps to help prison staff set up the right service for their prison. The toolkit also explores some of the challenges staff may come across such as safeguarding and risk management, confidentiality and prisoner churn.
