  • 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*

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