(Head/Next/Previous (Contents).)

This is a list of all Bail Hostels in the geographical British Isles.

Bail Hostels are a type of Open Prison, used as an alternative to full prison, and a
resettlement aid for prisoners who are nearing the end of their sentences. They are currently
run in England & Wales by the NPS. Other region's agencies are described in the sections for
those regions.

The HMPS is set to turn into the NOMS and merge with the NPS; this new agency will also
run the Bail Hostels.
Whether it will list them publicly or re-categorise them as Category E Prisons remains
entirely unclear.

Some regions now call Probation Hostels "Approved Premises". The "Approved" means by
the Home Office, or, in the Isle of Man, presumably the Department of Home Affairs.

Document History

This document is associated with a list of Closed Prisons, and was until recently in danger of
falling out of date with respect to new Hostels and the difficulty of finding information on
them. Searches are regularly carried out through online local papers and any material
submitted to will be published after verification.


        Originally from Circular HB/CTB A14/2000 by the DSS, that accidentally escaped
         onto the internet in March 2000AD. (Mr. David Jones (020) 7962 8269.)
         "This circular may be freely reproduced by recipients."
        Supplemented with Google®, newspaper and library searches, and a Probation Work
         Experience report written July 2002AD.
        New data about Wiltshire implemented August 2003AD.
        Cross-referencing produced phone/fax numbers May 2004AD.
        Posttowns corrected early April 2005AD.
        More phone/fax numbers by direct contact and corrected many postcodes, also
         starting data for both unequal halves of Ireland, mid April 2005AD.
        Some central NPS Directorate Statistics found: No addresses, but useful in keeping
         the existing list up-to-date, and adding gender, privatisation, and Mental Health info.
         Document Structure expanded to accommodate other regions. Late April 2005AD.
        IOM URL changes and internal anchor error corrected with Link Checker, mid
         January 2006AD.
        VoIP capability added early March 2006AD.
        VoIP documentation added late March 2006AD.
        Spelling Check and IOM location data upgraded mid April 2006AD.

This document was last revised TUEs~11/4/2006AD.


Clicking on the Hostel's name will reveal an interactive map of its locality. (As opposed to it's
postcode in the list of Closed prisons.)

Selecting the (Call) link will dial that number, if VoIP (eg Skype) is available.

         National Probation Service
         "Mentally Disordered Offenders":
         Hostels providing extra Mental Healthcare, whom "have entered into agreements with
         local psychiatric hospitals for the provision of additional services for residents."

Female Hostels are marked: {F♀}
Hermaphrodite Hostels, ie those containing both [unsegregated] male and female inmates,
are marked: {H}
Each Hostel's gender is shown next to it's entry. All others are male-only.

Privately operated hostels ("Voluntary Managed") are marked *,
Those specialising in mental healthcare provision (provided by local MSUs and PCTs, but
still run as usual) are marked §(3).
Those without other marks are under the jurisdiction of the local probation service.

Foreground Information

All but a few Probation Areas run Hostels.
Probation Officers like to call imprisoned people "residents".

Hostels have a curfew from 2300 to 0700. (From 2200 in Hampshire, and to 0600 in the West
Midlands.) There is 24Hr staff cover, and strictly/stupidly enforced house rules. Breaking the
rules results in warnings, or a Breach [of Bail], which generally means prison for a week.
(The extended rambling explanation that was here has moved to a separate page.)

Hostels Elsewhere

The NPS says there are 100 Hostels in England and Wales, and 103 of them are listed here,
so either they can't count or three are hiding from them (or new, or closed). All possibilities
are equally likely.

Hostels in Scotland

As far as I can tell, Scotland does not have Bail Hostels, probably because it dissolved its'
Probation system in 1968AD.

Hostels in Northern Ireland

It appears that Hostels in NI are not covered by the NPS, being instead under the remit of
the PBNI.
Hostels there seem to be much the same creatures as those in England & Wales nonetheless.
Research has not yet revealed where there are specifically yet, having only just noticed that
they exist at all. (This new direction has been prompted by a recent search request.)

Hostels in the Irish Republic

The Irish Republic has a small number of Hostels; research will look there next. Community
sentences are much more popular "over Eire". Currently centring on Cork, Waterford, and

Hostels in the Faroe Isles

While there are no Hostels in the Faroe Isles themselves, they are currently part of the Danish
