Norfolk project intends to prevent homelessness among ex-offenders
A new partnership project has been launched aimed at preventing homelessness among ex-offenders and reducing the likelihood they will return to criminal behaviour within the county.
The office of the police and crime commissioner for Norfolk (OPCCN) is working with St Martin’s Housing Trust to help people released from prison to find accommodation, bring stability to their lives and re-integrate into communities.
It states that having safe, consistent accommodation can reduce the likelihood someone will reoffend by 20 per cent, but prison leavers are at high risk of homelessness.
