Prisoners Abroad

Prisoners Abroad’s UK resettlement service for ex-prisoners received a £10,000 grant from ERSF which helped 309 ex-prisoners returning to the UK from prisons abroad.

It was used to help find a bed in a hostel/B&B/private house when they first arrived back to prevent them sleeping rough; paid the first few weeks rent until an alternative income could be secured (through work or benefits); provide a toiletries starter pack, travel card, pen and paper, and money to buy food; established the individual needs of each client and making appropriate referrals to organisations in the field of housing, education, training, benefits and health; provided emotional support and guidance.
