This report is based on the experiences of financial counsellors and other experts who work with people in prison. It explains how people often leave prison in a much worse financial position than when they entered. This is because when it comes to managing their debts, the system makes it nigh on impossible. Yet each debt that is tackled can mean one less person who is less likely to end up back in jail.
Centrecare's Financial Counsellor Robert Evans was a contributor to this report.
