The establishment re-roled again in 2008/09 and became the sole dedicated Young Offender Institution for the North West.

In 2011, the establishment was re-roled from a Category B YOI to a Category C YOI Training establishment.

In 2014, the establishment was again re-roled to a Cat C Adult Resettlement Prison.
