HMP Littlehey is a Category C male sex offenders prison.
In January 2010, HMP Littlehey opened a large expansion to its current site to accommodate a population of up to 480. This significant investment at the Littlehey site has allowed for the addition of four new accommodation blocks, an all weather sports pitch, gymnasium, adult learning centre and kitchen buildings. The regime will focus upon providing offenders with a portfolio of skills and qualifications to change their futures. Employability and functional skills will be at the centre of the establishment's drive towards reducing re-offending adding to Littlehey's already successful and forward thinking, integrated regime.
