Submission on the Corrections Bill, advocating for the continued support of services that work towards the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners.
The Salvation Army is intimately connected to the work happening for those serving sentences in prisons. Our Courts and Prisons service provide critical support and guidance to those facing the mammoth police, justice, courts and prisons processes. Our focus through all of these mediums is to continue to advocate for the sanctity of human life and to move towards solutions aimed around freedom from addictions and rehabilitation and reintegration back into communities. We strongly urge the Government to invest in these types of services so as to help ensure that those incarcerated are supported to be free from their addictions and do not re-offend once out of prison.
