A key initiative of the Government's Reducing Reoffending reform package is a new custodial case management model. This includes the establishment of new Case Management Units in NSW prisons.
This model will ensure continuous, consistent case plans for offenders, regardless of whether they are under Community Corrections supervision or in custody. The new custodial Case Management Units will ensure inmates can be continually targeted for the intervention and programs they need most, when they need it.
Case Management Units will create more than 150 new case management roles in prisons across the state and these roles are already funded for an initial three-year period.
The new model strengthens case management throughout offenders' entire interaction with the correctional system, ensuring consistency and continuity for those who move between the community and a prison setting.
Corrective Services' goal is that by mid-2020, almost 20,000 offenders will have accessed improved custodial case management through this model, which will support a reduction in the state's reoffending rate.
