Reducing re-offending 3.1

Term

Short

Number

3.1

Our Commitment

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 initiaitives, and the Government, through the SA Housing Authority, has delivered nine new beds for perpetrators to be remvoved 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.
