winston churchill memorial trustThis project by Winston Churchill Memorial Trust fellow Mindy Sotiri is an exploration of best practice in community-based reintegration services for people leaving prison. It has a particular focus on issues related to working with populations with complex needs, including people with cognitive impairment, mental illnesses, long histories of criminal justice system involvement, homelessness, and limited community connection and engagement. This research included an extensive literature review, hundreds of e-mail and phone conversations with experts around the world, and 26 direct service visits to community-based programs in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, Providence, New York, London, and Glasgow.
