Homelessness: Prison Experience and Resettlement Support

Working in collaboration with The Howard League for Penal Reform, this research explores the cyclical paths between homelessness and imprisonment, with a focus on the role of resettlement in reducing reoffending. This study, carried out in Liverpool, has a two tier focus: on one level, it considers homeless men and women’s experience of imprisonment, focusing specifically upon resettlement support from when they were inside prison and subsequent paths into homelessness. The second level focuses upon people inside prison and / or just released from prison, looking at their experience of homelessness, prior to imprisonment, and housing support received in preparation for their release.
