Getting Out


Your Guide to Surviving on the Outside

This booklet is a guide for ex-prisoners and prisoners who are about to be released.

Freedompresentsmany day-to-day challenges, like finding a place to live, understanding how Centrelink works, organising your money, or getting in touch with your family and friends. These things can put a lot of stress on someone who’s just been released.

Although you may have heard that many prisoners released from custody end up back in prison sooner or later, there are many others who succeed in making a new start. The first few weeks and months are critical. This booklet is here to help you through this time.
