Fostering Financial Stability for People in Prison

People in prison don’t need to pay twice. Financial stability can break the cycle of recidivism.  

Thriving Communities Partnership (TCA), alongside humans with lived experience and organisations supporting this work, believe firmly in a service ecosystem that provides safe, supportive pathways and services for people within and exiting prison. 

This work is undertaken in three phases – Understand, Immerse, Co-create and Share. Currently, TCA is in its third phase with the essential service ecosystem and community sector.  

Humans at the centre 

The voice of lived experience is central to all the work we do at TCA. By listening to and working with people in prison we are promoting better outcomes for humans and safer society for all.  

We give our sincere thanks to those that provided us with their insight, without whom this research would not be possible. We would like to acknowledge RMIT and Beyond the Stone Walls Advisory Collective for their support in this process. 

Cross-sector collaboration   

Our recommendations provide pathways for change but we are still early in this journey, moving from ideas to action is the next phase. The best results for individuals, organisations and the community occur when we have a movement of organisations working collaboratively. 

Witnessing the early engagement with the findings gives us hope for what may lie ahead as a result of our collective work.
