Justice Services

At Sodexo Justice Services, we’ve been helping to change lives for the better since 1993. We do this in over 120 sites across the world, including the total operation of four prisons in the UK.


Our reputation for delivering excellent, ethical, innovative and rehabilitative services is built on our complete package of custodial and noncustodial justice services for offenders, ex-offenders and those at risk of entering the criminal justice system. We pride ourselves on delivering services that provide best value for clients, taxpayers and society.

We are a leading provider of justice services and trusted partner to UK government, in the Uk we operate:

  • HMP Peterborough in Cambridgeshire

  • HMP Forest Bank in Manchester

  • HMP Bronzefield in Surrey 

  • HMP Addiewell in West Lothian, Scotland

Our mission

Our passion is to change lives for the better. And our people have a big part to play in that, by:

  • Working with clients and partners to protect the public

  • Helping to reduce crime by challenging offending behaviour

  • Offering individuals the opportunity to change

Our work doesn’t start or stop at the prison wall. In addition to 20 years’ experience of rehabilitating offenders, we run accommodation, support and drug services with links in community too.

The Government has called for prisons to become places of real work and meaningful activity — and we’re leading the way through workshops and skills training.

In this unique area of our business, you can choose from a range of career paths, all focused on improving people’s lives.
