Launch of Beyond Barbed Wire Evaluation Report by Western Research Institute on 3 May 2018 in Wellington.
A program based at Wellington Correction Centre is changing the lives of many female prisoners. 'Beyond Barbed Wire' is helping jailed mums get back on their feet as they go back to the community. The program is also reducing rates of re-offending significantly since it was incepted two years ago. It is hoped the program will be rolled out to other jails in the state.
