Abstract

This report identifies a gap in knowledge about the way young people experience the transition from custody back into the community. The early days to weeks following release can be an overwhelmingly stressful experience for young people, while some navigate this period relatively smoothly, the dominant theme is that young people find it hard to cope and feel disorientated when adjusting to life in the community. This relates to adjustments to the sudden change in environment and life regime, and the renegotiation of relationships. The report identifies recommendations for practitioners and policy makers to ease the transition process in order to allow for longer-term success in resettlement.
