Preparing for Release

Irish prisoners overseas are at a disadvantage as they don’t have the same opportunities to prepare for release as people imprisoned in Ireland. Many of our clients have lived and been imprisoned abroad for many years. We provide them with advice and support in advance of their release and assist them in accessing the supports they will require upon their return to Ireland.

The biggest issues that many clients initially face in returning to Ireland are accessing benefits and finding suitable accommodation. It is vital that people gather and keep any documentation they have in relation to their detention and, if possible, keep a copy of their passport or temporary travel document.

For further information on the post-release supports available read our leaflet produced in conjunction with Crosscare Migrant Project
