Research and resources



There are a number of organisations that provide services and support to inmates and people leaving prison.

Some of these are listed below, with links to their websites and further information.

  • The purpose of the Civil Chaplaincy Advisory Committee is to deal carefully with individual chaplaincy placements as well as addressing major issues of smooth coordination and clear communication between State Government bodies and member organisations. The committee works in three major areas: Health Services, Corrective Services and Youth Justice.
  • We are the Oceania Region of the International Prison Chaplains' Association. Our aim is to establish and develop a Worldwide Network of communication, information sharing and mutual support among prison chaplains around the world. The Oceania Region covers the wide geographical area of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and the Islands of the South Pacific.
  • The Throughcare Jigsaw Group is a collaboration of organisations providing broad based services for the benefit of offenders, ex-offenders and their families.
  • The Home for Good is a chaplaincy initiative established 1st February 2008 between Corrective Services NSW and Samaritans (Anglican Welfare, Newcastle). Clients will be from those who are leaving a custodial sentence, or who are on a non-custodial sentence such as a community service order or suspended sentence. Clients, their families, and volunteer mentors, engage in formal programs aimed at building capacity in personal relationships, family life and life management.
  • Friendshi​​p House is a re-entry program with assisted accommodation where the residents work in partnership with daily volunteers.
  • The Information for Family and Friends after a Death in Custody brochure provides formation to assist family and close friends.
