A charity that helps former prisoners re-integrate into society has told ITV News some ex-prisoners find it nearly impossible to integrate back into a small community like Guernsey's.
Guernsey Caring for Ex-Offenders is set to receive funding over the next two years from the government, guaranteeing its future.
The charity helps up to 40 people at a time to find work, a place to live and helps them find a new purpose in life.
Prison numbers are relatively high in the island, and Guernsey Caring for Ex-Offenders hopes the funding will continue to help reintegrate former prisoners back into society.
