Race Equality Strategy

Annual Report

Race Equality Action Team

Monthly Monitoring – Smart data

Race Equality Action Team

Is a multi-disciplinary team within the establishment and community

We meet bi-monthly

And discuss a set agenda which covers all aspects of Race Equality

At this meeting we monitor our action plan and ensure constant progress is being made

The prisoners advisory group form an important part of this meeting

And we monitor performance against a monthly key performance target for Race Equality

Race Equality Officer – Mike Donald

Mike is the establishment officer who deals with all things race equality

He is ably assisted by Geraldine Neil who is the Race Equality Co-ordinator

Between them they deal with all the daily issues in planning and organising events

Answering and investigating complaints of a racial nature

Completing monitoring and monthly returns

Finally we are always looking to build positive community links within the establishment and would welcome any help or volunteers to come and join our REAT and work with us to strengthen our community engagement strategy

If you are interested please contact Michael.Donald@hmps.gsi.gov  or Andrew.whitehorn@hmps.gsi.gov.uk  or call 023 92 953100 and ask for any of the above or write to us at HMP Kingston, 122 Milton Road, Milton, Portsmouth PO3 6AS

AW and MD have been invited along to talk about how HMP Kingston deals with their Race Equality issues.  

Race Equality Action Team – AW is the Chair of this.  This role would always be filled by the Governor or Deputy Governor.  3.2% of the staff are BME.  They hope to increase this.  

HMP Kingston is like a mini city happening behind the four walls.  Food, gyms, psychologists, medical teams, the workings of the prison and gardens etc all need people taking care of them or preparing the food etc.  

AW asked if anyone was interested in joining REAT and if so to contact him.  Also if anyone knows of a football team that would be interested in playing the HMP Kingston team they are always looking for teams to play a match against and have a paid professional referee.
