Commenting on the findings of today’s (16 November) annual report by the Independent Monitoring Board at HMP/YOI Bronzefield, Emily Evison, policy officer at the Prison Reform Trust said:

“Housing for prison leavers is touted as a priority for this government, but today’s report shows a situation getting worse, not better. It is unacceptable that more than three-quarters of women released from London’s main prison for women are without safe and secure accommodation a month after release. More must be done to meet the housing needs of women. Without access to safe, stable accommodation, they are being set up for further abuse and victimisation.”
