Deliver rehabilitation programmes
Programme facilitators (Kaikawe Hōtaka) run therapeutic programmes that help people to understand the factors that led to their offending, take responsibility, and work towards change.
Help inspire growth
Programmes run by our facilitators aim to help people take responsibility for their actions, motivate them to change their behaviour and teach them new strategies - which will help them lead an offence free life.
Plan, collaborate and facilitate
Programme facilitators plan and deliver therapeutic programmes, as well as monitor progress to make sure people are getting the most out of their sessions. They may work with psychologists, community probation and custodial staff, as well as whānau and community groups.
Support different rehabilitation pathways
Facilitators work with people from a range of backgrounds and life experiences, so need to be adaptable and great listeners.
There are a range of different programmes our facilitators deliver, including specific programmes for youth and women. Programmes are usually delivered in groups but can involve working one-on-one with individuals.

The Auckland-based Programme Facilitator works with people to help them find strategies to address their offending.
For the first time, the Short Rehabilitation Programme for Men was delivered in the small, remote Eastern Bay of Plenty community of Te Kaha. Delivered at the Hariki Whare, the venue provided a therapeutic and wairua-enhancing environment close to the moana.
