Abstract

This chapter considers the intersecting experiences of homelessness, disability and the criminal justice system in Australia. Homelessness is significant amongst offenders and people accused of offending especially amongst those entering and exiting prison in Australia. But certain groups of prisoners and ex-prisoners experience homelessness at a much higher rate than others, in particular people with mental and cognitive disability.

Keywords: complex support needs, criminal justice system, homelessness
