CAPPTIVE: Prisoners’ health during the Covid-19 pandemic

CAPPTIVE, a collaborative project by the Prison Reform Trust and our Prisoner Policy Network, aims to describe life in prison under the Covid-19 pandemic.

Drawn from responses from 85 prisons this, the third CAPPTIVE briefing, examines the prison service’s response, precautions, routine health care, disabilities, well-being, mental health, self-harm, and what helped during the pandemic.
