Young Offenders

Upcycle is currently working in the following young offenders institutes

HMYOI Peterborough

Funding secured by UpCycle was used to convert space in the prison to a bike workshop. We have been working in HMP YOI Peterborough since the end of 2022.

HMP YOI Peterborough is the only purpose-built prison in the country to accommodate both male and female prisoners, who are kept separate at all times. The bike workshop is currently operating on the male side of the prison.

The workshop has been so well received that it has already more than doubled the capacity of the original five workstations available. The workshop can now hold thirty-six trainees at a time. The instructors at these workshops are both Velotech accredited and can award qualifications up to Velotech Gold.

HMP YOI Peterborough comprises a local category B prison, a closed women’s prison and a category C extension, operated by Sodexo Justice. For more information about HMP Peterborough can be found on their website.
