Interserve Industries praised for COVID-19 response
Interserve’s team at HMP Berwyn has temporarily changed roles to support the prison’s response to COVID-19.
Ordinarily the company’s team of 25 colleagues at HMP Berwyn, in Wrexham, manage six employment centres that run a range of activities which are all linked to supporting prisoners to learn new skills so that once they finish their custodial sentence they are better equipped for getting work.
Prisons across the UK are currently in lockdown to keep rates of coronavirus infection low inside the custodial estate.
As a result, Interserve’s employment centres are not being used by the prisoners. Interserve’s Industries team has therefore taken on a range of tasks to support the prisoners during these exceptional times. Tasks they are undertaking include making breakfast, lunch, comfort and brew packs; as well as manufacturing secure casing for a dozen laptops.
All the items are being prepared to support the prisoners, who have limited access to the canteen.
