A Life Sentence Really? The Resettlement of Prisoners with a Conviction for a Sexual Offence and the Role of a Housing Support Charity in this Process

Helen Mills and Roger Grimshaw (March 2012)

This report explores the transition from prison for those with a conviction for a sexual offence, a group that faces and poses considerable challenges in the community after their prison release. Based on interviews with ex-prisoners convicted of a sexual offence, staff and volunteers at a specialist hostel for this group and representatives from local statutory agencies, the report considers three resettlement issues- housing, employment and community reintegration - and explores the dilemmas that arise for professionals involved in the lives of ex-prisoners with a conviction for a sexual offence.
