Accommodation

RECOOP has informed offenders about a variety of housing information and opportunities through invited speakers from Bournemouth Churches Housing Association, St Giles Trust, Stepping Stones, Gilead Foundation, The Bridge Exeter, Shekinah Mission Plymouth. We also signpost regularly to accommodation services within prisons.

  • As many as a third of prisoners lose their housing on imprisonment*
  • Around a third (35 per cent) of prisoners have nowhere to stay on release*
  • Short-term and repeat prisoners are more likely to be homeless when they leave custody*
  • More than three quarters of prisoners who reported being homeless before entering custody were reconvicted within a year of release (compared with 49% who were not homeless)*

* Impact Pathways  offer practitioners and service users access to over 50 accommodation providers in the Gloucestershire, Bristol, Avon and Somerset areas.
