WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THE SECURE ESTATE?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY CARERS WHO NEED SUPPORT?

In the Western Bay area, there are three main such “secure” establishments – two prisons (one in Swansea and one in Bridgend) and one secure Children’s Home in Neath Port Talbot, It is important that the care and support needs of people living in the secure estate are met both when people are in those establishments, and that plans are in place to also ensure people access the care and support they may need when they are released to live within the wider community

WHAT CHANGES DO WE HAVE TO PLAN FOR?

There is evidence that offending increases during periods of economic recession.

There is an increase in prison population across the UK which means increased demand for services at Parc if population there increased to full capacity.

There is no extra funding for social care for prisoners in Wales as it is within the allocation for Local Authorities to implement the Act.

WHAT CHANGES DO WE HAVE TO PLAN FOR?

Early implementation of the Act suggests that support relating to resettlement may be priority.

A multi-agency response is needed to meet prevention requirements.

Future joint commissioning strategies need to include prevention requirements of people in secure estate.

Treatment pathways for those using novel psychoactive substances.

Counselling should be made available for prisoners serving longer sentences.

Additional training for primary care staff is needed in sexual health and substance misuse.
