Servicing Pre-release Prisoners

Under the Australian Government’s Pre-release Prisoner (PRP) initiative, jobactive Services are available to eligible prisoners while they are incarcerated.

The PRP initiative under the jobactive Deed 2015–2020 aims to maximise employment support for people while they are incarcerated and following their release. Participation is intended to reduce former prisoners’ reliance on welfare after leaving prison by improving their job search skills and helping them build connections with employers at the earliest opportunity. This guideline explains what jobactive Providers (Providers) are required to do in servicing Pre-release Prisoners.
