                     The Library at Whitemoor operates as a branch of
                     Cambridgeshire County Libraries and provides a well-rounded
                     collection of materials for recreation and education. Additionally,
                     we also have music CDs DVDs, magazines, talking books on
                     cassette and CD, and large print books for the visually impaired.
                     For non-English speakers, we have many books in various foreign
                     languages. We operate satellite libraries in the Segregation unit,
                     Health Care Centre and F Wing. Legal Services also operates out
                     of the Library, with two designated officers who act as liaison
                     between prisoners and courts, provide assistance with legal
                     paperwork and provide forms for appeal. The library also offers
                     Story Book Dads and operates the Whitemoor TV channel.
                     The Activities group arranges external events to enhance
                     learning, including drama, music, dance, comedy, discussion,
                     poetry. These are intended to support other regimes and reduce
                     the effects of institutionalisation for long-term prisoners.

                   In addition to addressing spiritual needs of all faiths the
                   chaplaincy runs victim awareness restorative justice programmes
                   and also „Living with Loss‟. These are both accredited through
                   OCN.

                   HMP Whitemoor re-roled in April 08. Vulnerable prisoners moved
Specific           out of the establishment, leaving three wings of mainstream
Establishment      prisoners. This impacted the age and ethnicity of the overall
Information        population, to a wider cultural mix and a greater number of
                   younger prisoners than before. More prisoners are now below
                   level one. These events have demanded a change in the
                   curriculum offer, which is still developing to address changing
                   needs. An aspect of this is the likelihood of greater churn than
                   was the case a year ago – though still relatively small compared
                   to lower category establishments.
Additional         An OLASS IT workshop is being developed close to the
Information        restorative justice areas to ensure that learning and practical
                   application form ready progression pathways. Furniture craft may
                   be replaced by waste management.

                   shows clear patterns of change as VP‟s leave and we regain
                   population. It is anticipated that we will have a higher rate of
                   churn than 06-07 because of the shorter sentences of the new
                   population, but this is likely to settle out around 25 per month.

                       Warren Hill was built on Hollesley Bay‟s grounds in the early
                       1980‟s. At that time, it housed young offenders and operated
                       as a satellite of the parent establishment. In the early 2000s,
                       Warren Hill began to take juveniles from the Youth Justice
                       Board and eventually the whole population was juvenile. On
