PEOPLE LEAVING PRISON

GETTING STARTED

Getting Started is a guide for people leaving prison. There are 10 booklets in the series and 5 information sheets.

They each cover a different area that can be a challenge for people moving from prison to the community. The advice is practical and easy to read with contact numbers and details for the agencies that many prisoners will need to deal with. These resources are also available in Vietnamese.

These resources were funded by and produced in partnership with Corrections Victoria who holds responsibility for printing and distributing the material to people about to be released from prison.

You can find these resources here

CRIMINAL RECORDS AND EMPLOYMENT

People with criminal records do find and keep jobs. This brochure helps job seekers with a criminal record maximise their chances.

PASIFIKA BROCHURES

These brochures provide basic information regarding court and a list of useful websites that give information about Australian laws, legal rights and responsibilities in the language of the Cook Islands, including Maori, Samoan and Tongan language.

You can read these brochures here


Preparing for Release Videos

These videos were developed in collaboration with and performed by individuals who have personal experience of leaving prison. They aim to provide a realistic and intimate perspective on what it is like to think about release back into the community and to actually live through it.

'Moving on - Staying Free' & 'Moving on Setting Up'

The Videos can be found  here
