Life in prison: earning and spending money

‘Life in prison: Earning and spending money’ is a findings paper from HM Inspectorate of Prisons; part of a series which focuses on daily life in prisons and young offender institutions (YOIs) holding young adults (aged 18 to 21).

The paper found that a large number of prisoners – nearly 20% – reported entering prison with money problems. It is important that prisoners are provided with opportunities to improve their financial management skills and manage any debts they may have on entering prison, especially if the debt will continue to grow while the prisoner is in jail.
