Horizons is a new Ministry of Justice scheme to reduce reoffending and homelessness in West Yorkshire. Horizons supports vulnerable ex-prisoners to find accommodation, and provides tailored support to help them manage their tenancies, get into employment or education and engage with probation services. Government research shows that ex-prisoners who are in stable accommodation are much less likely to reoffend within a year than those who are sleeping rough.
Who can access Horizons?
Horizons is open to:
- who are serving less than two years in custody
- and who are at risk of homelessness
How to access Horizons
Horizons is available to clients who meet the criteria above as identified by HMP Leeds. Outside referrals are not accepted.
