HESIS was tasked to deliver fire and security maintenance services to GFSL across 12 prisons in the Greater London region, ranging from Category A sites to young offenders’ institutes. The role of HMPS is to keep those sentenced to prison in custody, helping them lead law-abiding and useful lives, both while in prison and after they are released.
After six months, HESIS had already begun to make its mark and demonstrate its capability. GFSL awarded the company a second six-month trial period, with a view to securing a full contract extension at the end of the year.
Having already established relationships and ways of working, it was this second trial period that enabled HESIS to prove itself as the right partner for the long term. The company’s proactive approach proved instrumental in forging strong relationships with GFSL and individual prison sites. With a firm focus on innovation and improvement from the outset, HESIS was able to implement change in a sector that is not always receptive to doing things differently.
