HMP Haverigg was opened in 1967 on the site of a former RAF camp and is the only prison in Cumbria.

Haverigg will accept prisoners suitable for Category C status who are able to participate in full time employment. Prisoners are accepted with a medical condition that is stable and do not have any outstanding hospital appointments or referrals outside this area. More complex medical conditions can be discussed with the Health Care manager. They accept prisoners with an open ACCT (Risk of Suicide) only with prior agreement with the Healthcare Manager and issues must form part of the prisoner's care plan.
Haverigg is a pilot site for the Integrated Drug Treatment System (IDTS) and will accept prisoners for this programme. IDTS is a new approach to drug treatment that involves CARAT, Healthcare and Prison staff working together more closely. IDTS represents the first step in a user's journey towards giving up drugs. This may involve them being prescribed medication such as Methadone or Subutex.

Every prison has a Chaplaincy department managed by a Co-ordinating Chaplain and supported by admin staff, other Chaplains and ‘Sessional Chaplains’ (faith leaders who visit for specific services or sessions). The Chaplaincy is considered an important part of the prison structure. When a prisoner arrives at a prison they are usually seen by a Chaplain within 24 hours and are invited to register as a specific religion (if they haven’t already done so) and can change their declared religion at any time.
The Chaplaincy, Healthcare Centre, Probation and Education departments all play a major role in the positive regime offering courses and one-to-one sessions where available to help prisoners with a variety of individual needs.
The Chaplaincy Team at Haverigg also employ a full-time Ecumenical Chaplain and a part-time Pentecostal Chaplain. A Rabbi and a Quaker representative are also on the Chaplaincy team.
In accordance with Prison Rules and good practice Haverigg Chaplaincy offer pastoral visits from the faith representative of any religion that is acceptable to the Prison Service,
