HMP Norwich predominantly serves the Courts of Norfolk and Suffolk.  The prison has occupied its current location overlooking the city of Norwich since 1887.  The site consists of 10 wings and a Special Care Unit.  HMP Norwich accepts male prisoners (Adult and Young Offenders) whether convicted (Cat B, C or D) or on remand / trial. 

At Norwich we are positively trying to help reintegrate offenders into the external environment by providing employment and training opportunities between the prison and the local business community. 

We aim to replicate the experience of everyday working life. Working in an ‘employment like’ atmosphere gives prisoners the opportunity to learn new skills and increases the opportunities for them to find employment on release.

We have already developed effective links with local businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk successfully providing more prisoners with meaningful work.  We are flexible to the needs of local businesses and continue to seek further opportunities to work in community partnership.

We operate under a Code of Practice that ensures we behave fairly with regard to both prisoners and local businesses.

The benefits for businesses working in partnership with HMP Norwich are manifold and include:

  • The prospect of working with, and providing positive outcomes for, hard to reach individuals, by employing them in the working environment;
  • Encouraging them to have a real working ethic which then can be transferred into the community;
  • Reducing re-offending in our local area of Norfolk and Suffolk making it a safer place to live and work for the public (their customers);
  • Increasing their customer's awareness of the emphasis their company places on its sense of responsibility towards the local and national community.
