Contents 1 History 2 The prison today 3 Notable former inmates 4 References 5 External links // History Downview was converted from a former nurses' home of The Royal Marsden Hospital and opened in 1989 as a Category C Male Prison. In 1992 HMP Downview saw the establishment of the UK's first intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme. The programme was established by RAPt (Rehabilitation for Addicted Prisoners Trust) and was opened by the actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, who remains a patron of the trust. In September 2001 Downview changed its role to a "closed" prison for adult women, due to increased demand for places at women's prisons in the UK.[1] A year later one of the prison's chaplains resigned after claims that he'd demanded sexual favours from inmates in exchange for communion wine.[2] In December 2004 a 16 bed juvenile unit opened at Downview for young female offenders (both remand and convicted) aged from 15-18 in partnership with the Youth Justice Board. In April 2006 the PRIME project was launched at Downview, which is a radio and media station inside the prison. Prisoners can achieve a BTEC qualification for completing the course.
