Koori intensive support program

 

Overview

The Koori intensive support program (KISP), based in Victoria, is an amalgamation from two other programs, the Koori intensive bail support program, and the Koori pre and post release program.

KISP works to reduce the number of young Aboriginal offenders who are detained prior to sentencing, and provides intensive outreach support to assist young people to comply with bail conditions or on conditions placed on deferred sentences. The program also provides assistance to help Aboriginal young offenders reintegrate into their communities.

KISP consists of a departmental-based position, and provides support within the correctional facility pre-release and is continued via outreach in the community after the young person is released from custody.
