Situation

To solve mature homeless men and women that are not seen as priority by the current housing rules. A safe place for mature ex-offenders when they leave prison without family support. Long-term ex-offenders are at a disadvantage when leaving prison; health issues, mental health issues, vulnerability, unable to adjust to the changes in society. The Through the Gate programme usually fails due to lack of supported accommodation. Reoffending costs the tax payer £15bn per year.

Solution

DiversityInCare provided supported housing for ex-offenders in Tower Hamlets and Hackney for two years. All of the men had complex needs and were 'career criminals'. We worked very closely and provided weekly key working, monthly therapy and training, volunteering and work opportunities by working in partnership with corporate, public and other charities. Probation was key to their development and a consistent level of care. Our model ensured that 7 out of 10 had positive outcomes.
