This report looks at reintegration services in Ireland and identifies the developments needed to improve the level of support currently available to prisoners, exprisoners and their families to limit the experience of imprisonment in the future. The findings of the report are based on a study undertaken by the Irish Penal Reform Trust between October 2009 and February 2010, which consisted of an extensive literature review, a number of semi-structured interviews with service providers (in the statutory and non-statutory sector), a short questionnaire sent out to a number of service providers in the community sector in different regions of Ireland, and two focus groupswith ex-prisoners residing in the Dublin area.
