The Prisoner Care Program (PCP) is administered through Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement (ALRM). PCP supports Aboriginal prisoners & offenders pre & post release.
Our aim is to mitigate the problem of offending & recidivism experienced with some of our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people.
How do we do this?
PCP works closely with Aboriginal Liaison Officers (ALOs) within the Department for Correctional Services (DCS), SA prisons & other stakeholders. We engage Aboriginal prisoners & offenders seeking an opportunity to ‘break the cycle of incarceration’ through intensive case management support.
We undertake this through:
- Building rapport
- Intake & assessment
- Holistic case planning re cultural, social and emotional well being
- Implementing, monitoring & reviewing individual client case management plans
- Providing culturally safe, sensitive & appropriate through care services
- Supporting clients 3 months pre-release and up to 2 years post release
- Provide advocacy & external referrals
- Engaging service support providers i.e. AoD services, grief & loss, family reunification, parenting programs, court support & supporting stable accommodation
- Connecting with the client, their families, other stakeholders & community
- Providing support to transition back into community whilst empowering the client to reach their goals and prevent re-offending behaviours
- Initiating referrals for employment, education & training
- Risk manage client involvement with alcohol & other drugs
- Promoting community and cultural active participation
