Introduction by the Director of Resettlement





  1. Chapter One of the Prison Service Order (PSO) replaces Standing Order 7A and updates the instructions and advice on religious provision and practice in prisons. It is also written to reflect a more inclusive approach to prison ministry. It will be supported by annexes on each of the main faiths which, when issued over the coming months, will replace the information currently contained in the Directory and Guide on Religious Practice in HM Prison Service.

2. Chapter Two of the PSO, to be issued in the coming months, will be on security issues as they impact on religious practice.


3. Chapter Three of the PSO on the Religious Consultative Services (RCSs) - faith advisers to the Prison Service - was issued in October 2000. A revised annex to the Chapter is now being issued with updated contact details for the RCSs. In particular, there are additional Hindu contact points and new regional contacts for the Sikh Chaplaincy Service.
4. Chapter Four of the PSO introduces the religion card for use at prison Reception Departments. The card displays recognised universal symbols representing the main world faiths to help ensure that those prisoners who do not understand English are able to correctly identify their religion to reception staff.
