Staff at Rimutaka Prison have been working with AA New Zealand on an initiative which will see 200 people obtain photographic identification (ID) before the end of June 2022.

The AA Mobile Unit visited the site in Hakihea/December, and assisted with helping over 50 men obtain a Kiwi Access Card or driver licence. For many of these men, this was the first time they had obtained a form of photo ID.

Having a form of photo ID will assist our staff to help the men open a bank account prior to release, and after their release enable them to register with Work and Income, apply for accommodation, register with a foodbank or other organisations that can support their reintegration into society.
