Crisis 'have your say'
Our response to Crisis’ call for evidence to inform their campaign to end homelessness.
Clinks has submitted a response to Crisis’ call for evidence to inform their campaign to end homelessness.
Our response highlights the importance of addressing people’s accommodation needs during their first contact with the criminal justice system; the need for timely resettlement support before people leave prison; and the challenges that remain with recording accurate accommodation outcomes. Our main recommendation is for the Ministry of Justice to develop a cross-departmental accommodation strategy in partnership with the Department for Communities and Local Government and Department of Work and Pensions to ensure people in contact with the criminal justice system are able to secure appropriate, safe accommodation.
