ReSet Consortium led by Wungening Aboriginal Corporation win justice tender to deliver reintegration services

Date posted: 21 December 2017

A leading metropolitan Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation, Wungening Aboriginal Corporation has led a Consortium comprising Centrecare Incorporated, Wirrpanda Foundation and St Bartholomew's House to secure a large portion of the Department of Justice's Adult Justice Services, including:

The Consortium will deliver an integrated suit of tailored, culturally competent and evidence-based reintegration services to offenders and their families in Perth metropolitan prisons and in the community. The Consortium will draw on its strengths and expertise in adult justice, alcohol and other drugs, family and relationships, housing, training and employment, Aboriginal engagement and case management to deliver the necessary holistic approach to offenders transitioning into the community.

The service model, to be known as ReSet, will be based on the delivery of throughcare for the offender using an integrated care approach. The ReSet service model has been designed to be directly aligned with the Department of Justice's integrated and targeted throughcare approach and will complement this approach by ensuring the service collaborates closely with the Department of Justice.

The lead agency, Wungening's CEO Daniel Morrison said 'the Consortium is committed to working closely with the Department of Justice to ensure the effectiveness of the model and to collaborate on evaluation and ongoing quality improvement of the service. We are committed to working in a different, more holistic way, to get better outcomes for our clients as they transition back into the community after a time in prison'.
