Scottish Government - Programme for Government 2019/20

The Scottish Government's Programme for Government 2019/20 was published on 3 September 2019. It stated that the new Women's National Facility (WNF) and first two Community Custody Units (CCUs) will not now be complete and operational by the end of 2020 as previously advised, but that the CCUs will open by the end of 2021 and construction of the new WNF is scheduled to begin early in 2020.

Whilst we welcome the introduction of the new CCUs, we remain concerned that the number of women currently imprisoned far exceeds the capacity provided by the new parts of the estate.
