HMP Thameside Gangs Service

Working as a discreet team within the wider Catch22 team at HMP Thameside

18 to 30-years-old

Workers are skilled in engaging a broad range of service users, backed with a good working knowledge of the environments they have come from as well as the issues they may face within prison.

Initial engagement identifies any issues related to gang involvement and sets out the support available. Where issues are identified, on-going support is provided to the service user. As part of this work a range of interventions is being explored in order to decrease the impact of gang association and violence within the prison.

The team works closely with other agencies, both in and out of the prison, to ensure good quality sharing of relevant information to support the reduction of violence to and by people with convictions.
