Transition 50+ Resettlement

Release from prison can be both a daunting and exciting experience. RECOOP’s Transition Programme, which has been designed to address the specific resettlement needs of those who are aged over 50, aims to equip older prisoners with the appropriate knowledge and skills to support a positive resettlement experience and to live responsibly and productively post release.

‘Transition’ is an affordable short programme, delivered at a pace that lends itself to the learning and engagement style of older people.  It broadly covers the following themes:

  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Benefits & Personal Budgeting
  • Re-establishing links with friends and family
  • Accessing Community Services
  • Volunteering

We are continually adding sessions to the programme based on learner feedback.  The most recent additions are Bereavement and the Benefits of Making a Will.

The ideal prisoner profile is:

  • Approaching retirement, perhaps looking for voluntary work rather than actively seeking employment;
  • Have health or social care needs;
  • Are longer sentenced, so more likely to be institutionalised;
  • Length of time still to serve is not a barrier.

A leaflet giving further information can be downloaded here.  For further information, please contact:  info@recoop.org.uk.
