Finance, Benefits and Debt

Within this Pathway we have arranged financial capacity training delivered by UNLOCK, enabling offenders to realise financial capability through the setting up of bank accounts and providing important information on rights in this area. Pension and benefit advice has also been provided, in partnership with local Age UK branches.

Statistics provided by Impact Pathways (July 2015) state that:

  • over 23,000 offenders have financial problems linked to their offending
  • 41% of prisoners have a finance, benefit and debt need
  • 48% of prisoners have a history of poor financial management and debt

Impact Pathways offer practitioners and service users access to organisations who can help improve the financial capability of offenders and the effect on other areas of life in the Gloucestershire, Avon, Bristol and Somerset areas.
