Prison Survival Guide

Prison Survival Guide

Surviving in prison is the coming to terms with what prison is. It is understanding and gaining the knowledge of how best to cope, how best to prepare, understanding the rules, understanding what is expected of you and what you can expect ( and what you are entitled to) from the prison system in return.

Surviving in prison is gaining knowledge and understanding how to put that knowledge to constructive use, such as:

  • How to prepare yourself and what to take with you to prison

  • How to prepare your family and friends

  • How to progress through the IEP scheme (Incentives and Earned Privileges)

  • Understanding the structure of a prison sentence

  • How to fit into a closed prison wing environment

  • The common mistakes that new prisoners can make

  • What to do if things go wrong

  • Jobs in prison

  • Daily routine/regime

  • Keeping in contact by letters, phone and visits

  • The best way to progress to open prison

  • Understanding prison jargon


No two sentences are the same. No two prisoners will have the same experiences, the same backgrounds, the same fears and expectations. Each will have their own individual problems.
