Adult Justice Reintegration

Zonta House is a sub-contractor to Centrecare as part of a consortium led by Wungening Aboriginal Corporation, providing support to women as they exit prison and reintegrate back into the community. This is in recognition of the high representation of women in prison who have experienced family and domestic violence and the need for a specialised support.

Reintegration

Our Reintegration Case Worker provides intensive case management support to women within the last 6 months of their prison sentence, and up to 12 months post release.

The program aims to reduce recidivism and holistically support women to reintegrate back into the community. Women are supported to connect back into community and establish supportive networks through a case management model inclusive of informal counselling, advocacy, and warm referrals to specialist services.

This program supported 34 women in the last 12 months to prepare for and establish safe and supported living in the community.

All the appointments we’ve had and discussions we have had about how far I’ve come, has just reiterated that I am capable of doing this.
