Walking out the prison gates

What does someone do after they leave prison? Life can be confusing or scary without support. Our Out of Gate service helps women serving a short sentence to find their feet again in the community once they’re released.

Our Out of Gate workers can help with:

  • housing
  • employment
  • education
  • reconnecting with family and community
  • finding the right healthcare.

How does it work?

  1. An Out of Gate family worker receives a referral.
  2. The woman due for release works out a reintegration plan with support from an Out of Gate family worker.
  3. The woman leaves prison.
  4. Support is provided in the community by the Out of Gate family worker and other agencies.

“I want to do what I can to help break the cycle.”
