Supported housing for prisoners returning to the community

This report was undertaken by the Australian Institute of Criminology for Corrections Victoria in 2018. It reviews current literature on approaches to delivering housing support for prisoners returning to the community.

The literature review reinforces earlier findings that prisoners released into stable housing are less likely to reoffend than those experiencing homelessness or unstable accommodation. It also confirms that good practice in housing models for correctional populations is flexible and focuses on individual needs, while emphasising a holistic, multi-agency approach to span the range of individual support required by clients.
