Corrections is seeking Providers to:
• Design and deliver a rolling reintegration education programme for individuals on remand in prison (Remand Reintegration Programme).
• Deliver a navigational and mentoring reintegration service to support participants and their whānau, through the transition from prison to the community (Out of Gate Reintegration Re-Designed Service).
• Have emergency accommodation options available for individuals if needed.
Remand Reintegration Programme
Corrections wants Providers to deliver a Remand Reintegration Programme because the pilot was well received by the Provider delivering the service, programme participants, and Corrections staff at the pilot sites. The programme allowed individuals to self-refer to the Out of Gate Reintegration Service which doubled the number of referrals to that service. Additionally, the programme increased engagement between the Provider and participants on the programme, and those that attended the programme and self-referred to Out of Gate Reintegration Service had better engagement and completion rates than the participants in the previous Out of Gate Reintegration Service.
Out of Gate Re-Designed Reintegration Service
Corrections wants Providers to support short serving individuals and those on remand with their reintegration needs in prison, and to support those individuals and their whānau with their reintegration needs during their transition into the community. The Whānau Ora approach to Out of Gate Reintegration Service pilot review showed how increasing the period of time the provider could work with the participant and their whānau for allowed for better outcomes and more meaningful engagement. Additionally, Corrections expects future service provision to include whānau because research and experience in other reintegration services suggests this leads to better outcomes.
The key outcomes for the Out of Gate Reintegration service and Remand Reintegration programme are to:
• Provide people with advice, support and information, which will enable them and their whānau to succeed on their reintegration journey from prison into the community.
• Enable and improve people’s access to community-based services.
• Improve wellbeing for individuals and their whānau who use the service.
• Have safer communities.
• Reduce re-offending.
• Have participants and their whānau thriving and becoming self sufficient.
