Investigating the post-release support needs of African-Australians who have been imprisoned in Victoria
The number of African-Australians in contact with the Victorian justice system has been increasing in the last five years. However, little is known about the imprisonment experiences and post-release reintegration needs and resettlement outcomes of this cohort.
Using a social ecological framework, this project will explore the role of family (immediate environment) and community (wider sociocultural context) supports for African Australians with lived experiences of previously being incarcerated in a Victorian correctional facility.
