Held from 14-15 November at Whittlebury Park, Northampton, the Custodial Facilities Forum is a must-attend event for all those involved in the design and build, management and supply of delivering secure facilities, including prisons, detention centres, constabularies, courts, customs and immigration centres.
In the light of Boris Johnson’s recent government pledges to provide an additional £100M to boost security in our prisons and also promises to create 10,000 more prison places in our overly cramped ageing institutions, there are more opportunities to engage in this sector.
This is the only event of its kind for this sector and provides an invaluable opportunity to break down barriers, gain access to decision-makers and enable real business to be done between built environment professionals and suppliers.

The third annual custodial facilities forum took place in November at Whittlebury Hall in Northamptonshire. Organised by Stable Events, the forum gathered both supplier delegates and project delegates, allowing them one-to-one meeting time, the opportunity to network with fellow professionals, and hear from speakers in the field. This was a useful event in which the public and private sector could make vital connections and share ideas.
As a partner of the Custodial Facilities Forum, The Custodial Review are pleased to announce that you have chance to present at the event – where secure estates and facilities of the future will be the focus.
The CFF are inviting submissions to present at the conference, which is being held on November 15 and 16 at Whittlebury Hall, Northants.
If you’re involved in the design, delivery or management of secure estates we’d be interested to hear about the following subject areas:
• Facilities that meet the needs of an ageing prison population including accessibility and designing for dementia.
• Custodial facilities that keep both staff and those remanded safe. What’s the latest best practice, how can we reduce the risks of self-harm and protect staff?
• Integrating rehabilitation and design, facilities of the future.
• Balancing efficiency, performance and long term cost-effectiveness in modernising secure facilities
• Innovations in the custodial sector – what can we learn and adopt from other countries, and other sectors such as mental health?
