Improving Post-release Employment Outcomes for People Leaving Prison

An opportunity to contribute to research on what works for ex-offenders

The Australian Research Council is funding a project on improving employment outcomes for people leaving prison, and it is seeking contributions from employment service providers about what works well.  

Universities involved in the project include UNSW, Deakin and Edith Cowan, and partner investigators include Jobs Australia members WISE Employment, ACSO and Break Thru People Solutions. 

The researchers would greatly value input from your experiences about innovative or successful practices.  Providers who participate will be able to receive ongoing updates on the progress with the research.
