HMYOI Aylesbury Prison Council
User Voice’s first Prison Council Elections at HMYOI Aylesbury took place on 30 March 2012, where a total of 69% of staff and prisoners voted.
The elections had the highest involvement of prisoners within the User Voice prison council projects so far; 75% of prisoners took part and voted.
This project poses challenges that differ from our other Prison Councils because Aylesbury is a Young Offender Institution where the population is aged from 17 to 21.
The 15 seats on the Council were allocated amongst the parties as follows:
- Lifestyle Party – 7 seats
- Inter-Relations Party – 5 seats
- Training Party – 3 seats
