This Request for Proposals (RFP) relates to the purchase of effective and value for money Parenting Support Services for Prisoners that will contribute to the reduction of intergenerational offending by:

• Providing parenting support to people in prison and their whānau that is based on ‘what works’ within
prisons and are culturally intelligent and effective specifically for Māori parents;
• Supporting people in prison to develop skills to be prosocial and engaged role models and/or carers
with their children and whānau, that can be developed further upon release;
• Providing skills and resources to parents for early intervention and support for their children.

The Parenting Support Services for Prisoners programme seeks to break the cycle of violence in homes and contribute to the reduction of intergenerational offending. It is expected that successful proposals will reflect modern best practices and promote gender and culturally responsive parenting solutions. This is to ensure that the programme reflects the changes to the dynamic makeup of whānau and families in Aotearoa.
