"I want to know what care and support I can get while in prison."
If you’re being released from prison it is important to tell us where you are going to live.
We’ll inform the local council where you will be living about your care and support needs. They may complete another assessment to make sure you still qualify, and to make sure you are getting the right care and support.
If you move to another prison outside East Riding of Yorkshire:
Your safety is the responsibility of the prison or approved premises where you are a resident. This means our safeguarding adults boards are not responsible for enquiries or reviews into abuse or neglect of a prisoner with care and support needs. However, we can advise, help and assist prison officials when needed, and may also ask prison staff to be members of our safeguarding adults boards.
If you are in prison and you are caring for another prisoner, you may qualify for help and support from us to make sure your own needs are being met.
Please note: to qualify for care and support, your care work cannot be part of a voluntary or paid job.
