CSNSW manages the Bolwara Transitional Centre at Emu Plains and Parramatta Transitional Centre which provide support for female offenders approaching release from custody.
Bolwara focuses on Aboriginal women and provides support for women who have histories of alcohol and other drugs use.
The Parramatta Transitional Centre supports female inmates serving longer sentences who are also preparing for release.
This transitional support is designed to help the women successfully return to the community and minimise their risk of re-offending.
