Gov Facilities Services Limited (GFSL)



About us


Gov Facility Services Limited (GFSL) provides facility maintenance services to prisons across the South of England.


Delivering our services in Prisons is challenging, but rewarding. Our teams enable a key part of the Justice system to work: allowing people to be housed securely and safely while in prison.

We also help the Prison Service reduce reoffending by providing opportunities for prisoners to develop skills and gain work experience. We currently support over a million hours per year of work by prisoners across the 49 prisons we maintain.

Who we are

We are a not-for-profit company working closely with Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS), to deliver a range of facility services, including statutory and mandatory planned maintenance, reactive repair, cleaning, stores operation and Project works.

Gov Facility Services Limited is a company registered at Companies House, with the registration number: 11061429


Our core objective is to support HMPPS in providing a safe working environment and maintaining and improving the physical infrastructure of their prisons. We only work in prisons run by HMPPS.

Our core focus centres around four areas:

Safety - our focus is to keep everyone safe. We work to establish an environment with strong moral responsibilities and control for Health & Safety and Technical Compliance.

Reliability - we want to be recognised for delivering a reliable and trusted service with a strong performance-based culture. We will be open and honest with our customers.

Efficiency - we aim to deliver services in the most cost-effective manner in order to maximise the value from our allocated budgets.

Our People - we recognise our people are key to success. We will develop and offer them opportunities to achieve their personal potential.
