Biyani

 

Overview

Located in Parramatta in Western Sydney, New South Wales, Biyani provided a programmed pathway for women offenders with mental health disorders and co-existing alcohol and other drug issues, as an alternative to a custodial sentence.

Women participating in this diversionary program received 24 hour accommodation and support to help stabilise their mental health and alcohol and other drug issues, and assist them in gaining access to long-term residential rehabilitation programs or appropriate community rehabilitation resources.
