Funding provided for progam to prevent re-offending

COMMUNITY progams will soon be introduced by Mount Gambier’s after it received a $15,000 grant to help reduce criminal reoffending.

The programs will help to enhance protective factors around offenders at Mount Gambier Prison to help the State Government to achieve its target of reducing reoffending by 10pc by the year 2020.

Corrections Minister Chris Picton said he hoped the new grant, which was awarded through the 2017-18 Department for Correctional Services (DCS) Community Grants Program, will help aid that goal.

“We are aiming to make sure prisoners do not end up back in a life of crime when they are released
