Pathways Home

An outreach case management support program for young people aged 10-24, residing in Western Sydney who have been involved with the criminal justice system and need support for drug and/or alcohol misuse.

The Pathways Home Program works with young people whilst in custody and post-release in the community. Transitional workers offer pre-release support, planning, and long-term holistic case management in the community.

Pathways Home supports young people in the following areas:

  • Parramatta
  • Cumberland
  • Blacktown
  • The Hills Shire

Outreach Work

We recognise the hurdles many young people face on their release from custody. A history of involvement with the criminal justice system can make it difficult to access support services. We can visit and support young people in correctional or juvenile justice centres on a pre-release basis, and on an outreach basis in the community.

How We Work

Pathways Home puts the young person at the centre of case management. We provide respectful and culturally appropriate support in helping the young person achieve and realise their goals.

Referral Process

Corrective Services staff wishing to make a referral can access a referral form here. This form should then be e-mailed to Please contact CRC directly on (02) 9288 8700 or through our contact us page if you need more information.

Young people in custody who would like to be referred to the service should contact relevant staff in their correctional centre or juvenile justice centre. This might be a SAPO, parole officer, juvenile justice worker or a case manager. NGO organisations can also refer on behalf of a young person. It is possible to self-refer by contacting us through the details on our contact us page.

The Pathways Home Program is funded by Western Sydney Primary Health Work.
