What is TWES?
TWES supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to obtain employment when they leave prison.
The program is designed to assist people re-enter the workforce upon release. Our facilitators work with people in prison within three to four months of people being released to undertake a tailored employment assessment to identify their aspirations, skills and any barriers they may face to employment.
Collaboratively, we design a transition plan to help with searching for a job post-release. Then participants are linked with employment providers who support them to find work as well as referring them to other necessary support post-release. The program provides people with a facilitated transfer from their in-prison support provider to their post-release employment service provider, where possible.
