With the offender rehabilitation bill soon to have its second reading in the House of Commons, it is important to highlight failings in the government's so-called 'resettlement prisons', which are intended to be located within the home areas of offenders. The bill says that a system will be put in place which "joins the geography of the prison estate with community provision so that offenders sentenced to custodial sentences receive a continuous 'though the gate' package of effective support delivered by the same provider".
