Community Restorative Centre
The Community Restorative Centre (CRC) provides a range of services to people involved in the criminal justice system and their families. CRC is the lead provider of specialist through-care, post-release, and re-integration programs for people transitioning from prison into the community in NSW. All CRC programs aim to reduce crime and break entrenched cycles of disadvantage, offending and imprisonment.
The Miranda Project is an initiative of the Corrective Services NSW Women’s Advisory Council (WAC) and a project of the CRC. The primary aim of the Project is to reduce the numbers of women in prison through the establishment of a holistic inclusive support service. The service will assist women to desist from offending, function as a diversionary program and provide post-release support for those returning to the community.
The service will focus on women at risk of involvement or already in the criminal justice system while being available to any woman in the community. The Project is based on positively evaluated models in the UK. The WAC maintains oversight responsibility of the project. [More...]
