The barriers to successful reintegration those convicted of sexual offences face, often lead to social isolation and prevent desistance from crime being achieved (Tewksbury & Mustaine, Journal of Public Management & Social Policy, 15 (2), 215–239, 2009). Of those who commit these offences, the elderly and intellectually disabled face even greater barriers, often finding the transition from prison to community the most difficult. In 2014, a prison-model of CoSA was established to support these individuals specifically. A qualitative evaluation was commenced at the same time, involving interviews with the Core Members to explore their personal experience of the prison-based model. This chapter will explore some of the key themes derived from the data in relation to the support the prison-based model of CoSA provided the Core Members during their transition from prison to community.
