Aboriginal women with dependent children leaving prison project



This project investigates the transitional and post release needs of Aboriginal women with dependent children who are exiting prison in Western Sydney. It aims to understand their needs; appropriate services available and service gaps in the area, in order to recommend a service model and evaluation framework addressing these needs. In the longer term it is to inform a supported housing pilot project for this group of women and their children. This project is an Australian Research Council linkage project led by Associate Professor Eileen Baldry at the University of New South Wales with collaboration from Homelessness NSW and the NSW Department of Community Services.
