At HMP Oakwood we aim to inspire, motivate and guide prisoners to become the best they can be. We offer state of the art facilities, full time employment, programmes and access to physical health and wellbeing initiatives.
The prison which is managed privately by G4S became operational on the 24th April 2012. It is located next to the existing HMP Featherstone and HMP Brinsford near Wolverhampton. HMP Oakwood will be one of the largest prisons in England and Wales, providing places for up to 1,605 Category C male prisoners. The prison is expected to be at full capacity by autumn 2012.
