This survey aimed at exploring and analysing the factors affecting community perception and receptiveness of ex-inmates in order to inform the effective implementation of the project. The survey specifically focused on: the social and economic developments, opportunities and risks in the community with special regard to reintegrating ex-inmates into the community; the structures of current activities and programmes in support of youth and ex-inmates; the social factors affecting ex-inmates in the reintegration process; the regulatory environment and legal impact assessment with regard to the employability and reintegration of ex-inmates; access to relevant vital information to ex-inmates and the impact of the information on their performance; community acceptance of ex-inmates and who the key players are in that effort at community level; and the perception and reaction of the community towards the criminal justice system and prison in particular.
