Our Uniting Reintegration team provides Specialist Re-entry Services (SRS), including pre-release and reintegration support to men who have been incarcerated for life or indeterminate periods, or for long sentences.

Reintegration — achievements in brief

  • Through prison advocacy, a participant was encouraged and supported to obtain their driver’s license while still incarcerated
  • A long-term prisoner completed 10 reintegration leave sessions with the Specialist Re-Entry Services team, exposing him to the community for the first time in more than 18 years
  • A participant successfully obtained employment and started working in landscaping.

A participant gave an emotional thank you to the entire SRS team for the birthday card he received. It was the only birthday card he had received since his incarceration 7 years prior.

Note: All SRS participants are sent individualised birthday and Christmas cards each year signed by all team members.

“You listened and you did what you said you were going to do. I was pleased with the respect I was given.”

“Thank you for your ongoing support over the years. Your commitment and loyalty have been greatly appreciated. Your assistance has eased my transition back into the community.”
