Gender and age-appropriate transitional support services are of paramount importance in the rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders into society
Criminologist AU | Prison Transition | Support Services

Criminologist AU actively supports all people transitioning from the correctional system.  In particular, Criminologist AU focuses on LGBTIQ+ women in the prison system.

Mentoring to women is currently provided through the Women's Justice Network mentoring program.  A specialist LGBTIQ+ women's program is in development by Criminologist AU in collaboration with Beyond Gender, Women's Justice Network and the NSW Gender Centre.

If you would like to support individuals transitioning from the prison system to assist in their successful reintegration into society, please contact either Criminologist AU or the Women's Justice Network.


Criminologist AU is developing a list of suitable accommodation services for LGBTIQ+ individuals exiting the prison system.

If you are aware of suitable accommodation services please let us know. 


Education needs of LGBTIQ+ individuals in the prison system are varied.  Therefore Criminologist AU may refer individuals to a range of services for either secondary education, tertiary education or upskilling. 

Please let us know if you are aware of suitable education programs.


Individuals may be referred to employment services which actively assist LGBTIQ+ ex-prisoners to find sustainable employment.

If you are aware of employment services or suitable employment opportunities please let us know.


Criminologist AU provides support to LGBTIQ+ women in prison, appearing in court or upon release with referral to suitable services and mentoring.

If you are interested in mentoring an LGBTIQ+ woman please contact Criminologist AU or Women's Justice Network.
