Health inequities

People in the revolving door often live in communities experiencing extreme social inequality and poor health outcomes. They experience significant health problems (including physical and mental health) which are often complicated by social issues such as unemployment, debt, homelessness and social isolation. Addressing these needs is key to reducing reoffending, reducing victims and keeping our communities safe.

Failure to do so costs lives. Since 2011, the number of people who die after being released from prison has increased five-fold.

We are bringing together robust research evidence and lived experience to tackle health inequities people in the revolving door face.
