Depaul wins £400k resettlement contract for young offenders

Charity will help prisoners from HMP & YOI Isis for the next three years

Homelessness charity Depaul UK has won a £400,000 contract to provide resettlement services for young offenders at London’s newest prison.

HMP & YOI Isis, which opened last month and holds 622 young offenders, awarded the charity a three-year contract, which starts on 9 August.

Depaul, which has 170 employees, will have three staff working inside the prison to ensure that prisoners have safe and secure accommodation on release.

Una Barry, deputy chief executive of Depaul, said: "We are confident that we can repeat the success we have had across the country in preventing reoffending among young people."

Depaul, whose income is £7.4m, also works in young offender institutions at Rochester, Brinsford and Deerbolt.
