More Information

Opened in 1982 as part of Hollesley Bay Prison, Warren Hill as used to hold Category C Young Offenders. In January 2000, Warren Hill was re-rolled to hold juvenile prisoners, and an additional wing called the 'Carlford Unit' was opened on the site to hold juveniles serving indefinite, life and long term sentences. In April 2002, Hollesley Bay and Warren Hill became two separate prisons, with separate management and regimes.
Warren Hill holds juvenile males in a closed security category environment. Prisoners are housed in single occupancy cells, each with its own sanitation, aside from one cell which accommodates two occupants.
Warren Hill provides education and skills training for prisoners. The prison's gym also operates a range of activities and courses. Warren Hill's Juvenile Activity Centre accommodates a drug rehabilitation project and a special education intervention group. There is also a special leisure area for inmates who earn privileges.
On 4 September 2013, the Ministry of Justice announced that it intends to convert Warren Hill into a prison for adult male inmates.[2]
