HMP/YOI Askham Grange is part of the Yorkshire and Humberside Area in the Directorate of Operations.

It contributes to the delivery of the Key Objectives of the Prison Service by delivering a national service to women prisoners (residents) and young offenders and offers the opportunity for up to ten mothers to maintain full-time care of their child or children whilst in custody. It is an open prison, which facilitates a comprehensive resettlement regime for long and, increasingly, short-stay residents. Key to the delivery of this regime and of primary focus to Askham Grange is the maintenance of decent and respectful relationships between all who live, work and visit here, and the community benefit of pro-social modelling. Support in achieving positive family relationships and learning is provided in parallel with educational and work skills and personal development.
