About Offender Resettlement
Offender Resettlement services are provided to ex-offenders on their release from prison to help them positively re-engage with society. On their release, ex-offenders are given limited support by the prison service who can give them just £40 and a ticket to their next probation appointment. Many of them sadly have no home to return to, poor finances and no support network. These factors significantly increase their probability of falling into a cycle of reoffending.
Offender Resettlement aims to prevent this. Resettlement staff help and advise ex-offenders with housing issues, benefit claims, financial struggles, employment, education and much more. By providing individualised, tailored support to those leaving custody, Resettlement staff give the support necessary to help reduce reoffending and increase successful rehabilitation.
