Essex Housing Protocols

A series of protocols have been produced by partners to support ongoing housing and related services. The first protocol is the Essex Prisoner Release Housing Protocol…

Essex Prisoner Release Housing Protocol

The Prison Release Protocol has had its first major refresh and update since it was initially developed some years ago; the new protocol, which includes partners from Greater Essex Housing Authorities, ECC, National Probation Service, Essex Police Fire & Crime Commissioner and HMPs Chelmsford/Peterborough, has gone through the various consultation stages and was officially signed off last Autumn and relaunched online on 10 October 2023 coinciding with World Homelessness Day.

Governance of the protocol will continue to be led by the 2-monthly partners meeting chaired by Simon Ablitt (NPS).

You can view the full Prison Release Protocol here.

Further protocols will be added to the page in due course.
