Find out what to do if you’re an ex-offender or someone who’s just left prison and don’t have anywhere to live
Having a fixed address will make it much easier for you to settle back into normal daily life if you’ve recently left prison.
Having a fixed address can help you:
- get a job
- register with a doctor
- receive drug or alcohol treatment
What you should do
If necessary, the prison’s housing officer will refer you to the Council’s Housing Advice Team. In some situations, they may have a duty to provide you with accommodation upon your release.
Housing Advice Team
Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm
Outside of office hours you should visit your local police station and speak to the Emergency Duty Team.
