Information for Staff


As a critical public service, the continuation of our day to day operations is imperative. The Scottish Government has confirmed prison staff as key workers, recognising the important role that you all play in keeping our country safe.

Unlike many other organisations who can potentially close their business, or make arrangements for all staff to work from home, this is not the case for those of us working for SPS, whether that’s in our prisons, our headquarters, our college or in central stores. To meet the challenges that we will undoubtedly face over the next few months we’ll all have to have patience and understanding; and be ready to work flexibly to support each other and ensure business continuity.

A dedicated COVID-19 SharePoint site has been set up and is regularly updated. This is where staff can find further advice, guidance and a FAQ section.

SPS Connect is our new staff newsletter. It has been developed as part of our ongoing efforts to keep in touch with staff both at work and those currently at home. These newsletters will feature the best guidance and advice, to help you and those you care about, manage your health and wellbeing during this difficult time. Copies of the newsletter can be accessed by clicking on the links below.
