Prisoners on release - Other help

This guide tells you what benefits you can get if you are on release from prison

Other help

You may be able to apply to your local authority's Local Welfare Assistance scheme for help to re-establish yourself in the community following a stay in prison. What help is available will depend on your local scheme. See our Emergency Information guide information on Local Welfare Assistance funds for further details.

You may also receive a discharge grant from the prison to help with living costs before your benefits come through.
