Right to housing

Finding housing after a long period of incarceration is often a challenge for former inmates. At Forest Bank prison in the United Kingdom, we help them find accommodation through an active partnership policy.

Right to housing

Assisting prisoners

Thanks to the combined efforts of housing aid associations, local authorities and private owners, prisoners receive effective assistance.

Prior to their release, most of them have already signed a lease guaranteeing they will have a roof over their head. Similarly, in collaboration with companies like the Co-operative Bank, we see to it that inmates are able to open a bank account when they leave prison.
This gives them the opportunity to lead a normal life.
