​RESETTLEMENT & REINTEGRATION

CSI exposes inmates to workplaces that are real, relevant and closely matched to the sort of workplace they'd find in the community.

However, our role is more complex than just putting inmates to work and training them. It is to prepare them to participate in a pro-social way in the community upon their release and seek employment.

With pre-release planning, employment opportunities are then sought from our links in the working community. Would you consider employing an ex-offender in your organisation?

Ex-offenders face many barriers on the road to reintegration. Support to gain or improve marketable skills and secure employment soon after release has been shown to be a vital component in ensuring a successful transition back into the community.

Most sentenced offenders in NSW work in correctional industry business units and also undertake specialised programs and education. Through forging links with industry associations, employers, trades unions and other government agencies, CSI plays a key role in an offender’s successful reintegration to the community.

The benefit to a prospective employer is that an ex-offender is inducted in OH&S, trained in work readiness skills, with assessed production line competencies and with work experience in quality accredited business units.

By linking with correctional centres that already have business units involved in their industry, employers can contribute to the design and delivery of programs for improving the education and vocational training of offenders. They also have access to a pool of job ready workers.

Today, many corporate organisations include social responsibility as part of their mainstream business values. If you would like to know more about ex-offender employment programs, or know of someone you think may be interested, please contact the CSI Business Manager tel: 02 4582 2420.
