About Us

inWork has the ability to produce a diverse range of quality products at a more economical price than other manufacturers.

Whatever your needs inWork can help you to significantly improve and grow your business. Our commitment to quality allows us to deliver products to customers on time, every time and at a price that allows you to compete successfully in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

inWork is the commercial enterprise and structured activity department within HMP Kilmarnock. As part of Serco Civil Government, an organisation that is at the forefront of custodial service provision in the United Kingdom we are totally committed to education, training and rehabilitation of prisoners. SCG is a wholly owned subsidiary of Serco Group plc, an international provider of management services to government and industry in a diverse range of sectors, including defence transport and Justice.

HMP Kilmarnock opened in March 1999 and has a population of around 500 prisoners. We are an industrial working prison with a strong emphasis on education and vocational training. In our modern industrial units prisoners work a 35 hour week, gain meaningful work experience, receive training towards nationally recognised qualifications and earn wages at a level that allows them greater self-sufficiency. All of these innovations are aimed at helping prisoners when they re-enter society. Our workshop instructors are from custodial and industrial backgrounds and we have many years experience in both public and private sector manufacturing.

Besides being an attractive commercial proposition, inWork enables you the business partner to make a valuable social contribution through participating in the rehabilitation of prisoners.

SCG does not derive any profit from inWork and any surplus after meeting prisoners pay and operating costs are reinvested in training and amenities for the prisoners.

"Motivate them, train them, care about them, and make winners out of them... they'll treat the customers right. And if customers are treated right, they'll come back."
