HMP and YOI Grampian is a purpose built, new community facing prison designed to houseadult males, young offenders and female prisoners. The prison replaced two older prisons – HMP Peterhead and HMP Aberdeen. The 550-place prison includes the main building, an adult accommodation block, a young offenders’ block, a female prisoner block, a prisoner services building with education facilities, a gate building and an admin area. HMP and YOI Grampian also include a community reintegration building, which is designed for prisoners who are working towards being released.
Through the inclusion of a wide range of facilities the prison presents a number of opportunities for staff to engage with prisoners, allowing them to aid a prisoner’s rehabilitation back into society. The prison has been designed as a welcoming and safe environment for visitors; one that is also a child and young person friendly space too.
