Due to the high rates of Aboriginal people in custody Outcare runs a specialist program to support effective transition from prison to reconnection with their community and culture. The Aboriginal Throughcare program supports Aboriginal ex-offenders who have limited options in mainstream services. Connecting clients with their cultural heritage is a key element of the program’s success.
This program focuses on reducing reoffending and keeping people out of prison. Working within the prison environment as well as following release, Outcare provides services and tools such as mentoring, Driver’s Licence training, employment skills development, accommodation and advocacy.
We also offer specialist youth programs, which cater for young Aboriginal people.
