Housing information and advice for prison leavers and professionals working with offenders.
Most prisons or youth detention accommodation centres have a housing advice and resettlement service. The probation service may also be able to help. They will help you submit your housing application and, if appropriate, arrange a phone assessment with a specially trained housing advisor. The housing advisor can provide advice and information on the housing options open to you.
It’s important that you speak to a resettlement worker as soon as possible, which will allow you more time to prepare.
