Abstract: The probation and prison services within England and Wales are undergoing change which is argued will enhance rehabilitation. One aspect of this change is the introduction of the Enabling Environments standards into Approved Premises and many prison establishments. This paper examines the progress towards this goal across seven sites (four Approved Premises and three prisons) all of which are currently included in a multi-site longitudinal study examining the impact of Enabling Environments. With only one service having gained the award in the last two years, the majority of sites are behind the expected schedule with four re-launching the EE programme. It is argued that embedding the Enabling Environments standards should be seen as an organization change process. Drawing on organizational research and learning, this paper presents four learning points that might be implemented to overcome the difficulties experienced and assist with realizing the change being promoted.
