In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, preparing people for release from prison or move-on from an Approved Premises has never been more important. Not only are some people being released into unfamiliar communities, without access to local support, they are also faced with the differences that Coronavirus has made to our everyday lives.
RECOOP’s Resettlement Packs have been developed to alleviate some of the concerns people face when moving to a new area to help with orientation and to signpost to services that can offer support.
“These area-specific Packs have been made available to the residents at our Approved Premises who are moving on and were found to be very helpful. Residents commented they were like visiting a local Citizens Advice Bureau or even a Tourist Information office – a one-stop shop for what was in the local area, what support there was and contact numbers for everything from GPs to council offices, leisure facilities etc. They are an invaluable resource”.
