Outcare has 6 service principles that guide the way our services are designed and delivered.
- We address criminogenic needs – Criminogenic needs are factors that relate to offending and re‑offending. Our approach works to positively change offender behaviour, address risk and build the ability to live crime-free.
- Our approach is informed by research and tested in the field – We’ve been working with offenders, their families and people at risk of offending for a long time and we know what works. We also keep up with the very latest research and global best-practice in rehabilitation services.
- We give our clients a voice through service co‑design – Outcare appreciates our clients are best placed to determine what support will help them to live free of crime.
- We focus on outcomes – Outcare tests, evaluates and demonstrates the impact of our work.
- We seek opportunities for co-contribution and justice reinvestment – The most sustainable and successful programs involve a co-contribution from public, private and community funding. We believe in Justice Reinvestment, which diverts funds traditionally used to keep people in prison, towards community level solutions.
- We establish productive partnerships to strengthen our impact – We partner with specialist agencies to provide targeted solutions to meet clients’ needs.
