HMP/Young Offender Institute (YOI) Littlehey is a purpose build Category C prison which holds convicted and sentenced adults and young adults within the YOI.
There are 12 residential units, 6 of which are 'Ready to Use' Units (RTUs), one added in 1997 and the second in 2003 and 4 added in 2010 within the YOI side.
In January 2010, HMP Littlehey opened a large expansion to its current site to accommodate a population of up to 480 young offenders. This significant investment at the Littlehey site has allowed for the addition of four new accommodation blocks, an all weather sports pitch, gymnasium, adult learning centre and kitchen buildings. The regime will focus upon providing young offenders with a portfolio of skills and qualifications to change their futures. Employability and functional skills will be at the centre of the establishment's drive towards reducing re-offending adding to Littlehey's already successful and forward thinking, integrated regime.
