David Morgan, Entrepreneurs Unlocked Founder, said: “I am delighted that thanks to the National Lottery Funding we will be working with five prisons in Lancashire/Cumbria for the first time. We have worked across Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside since we launched Entrepreneurs Unlocked in 2019, and it has always been my ambition to further extend our offering to additional regions in the Northwest.

The programmes will be rolled out at HMP Haverigg in Cumbria, and HMP Kirkham, Lancaster Farms, Preston and Wymott in the coming months.
