Programmes and Rehabilitation
Hōtaka me te Whakarauora
Employment activities, rehabilitation, educational and support programmes to help reduce re-offending rates.
Rehabilitation programmes include motivation to change, cognitive-behavioural interventions and general skills to help offenders to lead crime-free lives. Employment opportunities give offenders the chance to develop work habits and gain skills and qualifications that will lead to sustainable employment.
