reintegration support

I’m Leaving Prison & Going Home

Centacare Kimberley in partnership with Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corp and Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services offers support to people who are leaving prison and returning to live in their communities, across the Kimberley. Going home can be a tough time! Reuniting with kids and your family can be hard when they haven’t lived with you for a while. We provide support that can help make that move a lot more successful.

From helping you to plan your return home, to being outside the gate on your release date to help settle you back into the community, are just some of the ways we provide support. We offer workshops in Derby prison that can help you with cultural healing, and to develop extra skills to get a home, work towards getting a job, or to become the parent you have always wanted to be. Our role is to make sure that you are connected back to your community, so you have the best possible chance of staying out of prison.

If you need help with;

  • Getting a home
  • Accessing specialist and cultural support
  • Starting a journey of healing
  • Returning back to your remote community
  • Reuniting with your family
  • Getting a traineeship or job
  • Going back to school
  • Saying away from drugs or alcohol, or
  • Becoming a better parent

Our team of local support workers in Broome, Derby and Kununurra are here to provide you with the right type of support.
