Prisoners: Housing and Resettlement

Volume 702: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many prisons in England and Wales provide resettlement services to prisoners upon leaving prison and subsequently. [HL4154]

All prisons in England and Wales provide resettlement services to prisoners. Establishments ensure that resettlement interventions along the seven pathways for rehabilitation—which include accommodation, education, training and employment, health, drugs and alcohol, finance, benefit and debt, children and families and attitudes, thinking and behaviour—are addressed based on the needs of the individual offender. The NOMS offender management model allows us to extend offender management including resettlement services to offenders who have been released from prison.
