- supporting and assisting research into Australian prisons,
- providing information and support to prisoners, prisoners families, and people working in the corrections field
- forming partnerships of support with other prison groups
We seek to create:
- a database of prison support organisations and individuals
- a library of research and information
- links between communities and prisons
Our purpose is to inspire, encourage and support fathers and father
figures in our community to be more present and pro-active at every stage
of their kids¹ life. A positive relationship with their kids means they
- Less likely to use illicit substances
Have improved mental health and a stronger sense of worth resulting in
less self-harm and suicide
- Better in health and general wellbeing
- Further developed cognitive ability
- Performing better in schools
After all, our work is benefiting kids around Australia.
