Reducing re-offending 3.1
We will continue to work on an overall reduction in re-offending, with a focus on perpetrators of domestic, family and sexual violence
What have we achieved
The State Government has undertaken and funded significant work across the sector during the past year. Funding was provided to the Men's Referral Service, KWY and Community Transitions (OARS) for new programs and initiatives, and the Government, through the SA Housing Authority, has delivered nine new beds for perpetrators to be removed from their homes.
What is next
As part of the Statewide Perpetrator Response we will entrench new procedures and policies in relation to perpetrators and improving outcomes for them and their families.
What difference will we make
Perpetrators will be held accountable for their behaviour but also have the opportunity to access services prior to becoming involved in the criminal justice system.
