This study explores the relationship between homelessness and crime as perceived by those who have experienced homelessness and have been imprisoned. It is the first of its kind to be carried out in Ireland. This study shows that while periods of imprisonment can indeed lead to homelessness, homelessness can also lead to imprisonment. The study also shows that there are an inadequate supply of supported and transition housing for ex-prisoners and those who have experienced homelessness, an inadequate supply of social and affordable housing, an inaccessible private rented sector, an inadequate supply of and/or continuing access to drug and alcohol treatment programmes and a shortage of family support and mediation services to help prevent the breakdown of family and spousal relationships during and immediately after a period of imprisonment or during a spell of homelessness.
