Housing after prison for people with complex support needs

One of the classic metaphors for exiting prison is ‘going home’. However, more than half of people exiting Australian prisons either expect to be homeless or don’t know where they will be staying when they are released. Post-release housing assistance is a potentially powerful lever in arresting the imprisonment–homelessness cycle, and breaking down the disabling web of punishment and containment in which people with complex support needs are often caught.

This seminar presents new research by Dr Chris Martin and colleagues from the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) on the reality and potential of housing assistance after prison.
