A huge thanks to Curate Church Tauranga for including Community Corrections in their much appreciated donations. In partnership with Stoney Creek, the church has put together some winter clothing packs filled with warm, cosy clothes!

The church kindly donated some of these packs for staff at the Hillier Reporting Centre to pass on to the families of people on community based sentences.

Probation Officer Louise was delighted to accept the clothing on behalf of one of the nominated families. “It highlights the importance of working in partnership with local agencies and how this can benefit people. It’s nice to think we can create not only safer communities, but warmer ones,” says Louise.

Probation officers (Āpiha Matakana) motivate and encourage people in our management to make positive changes in their lives and ensure they comply with their community-based sentences and orders.

Their work often means working closely with offenders’ whānau, programme facilitators and community work supervisors as well as other agencies including Work and Income, The Salvation Army, and Oranga Tamariki.
