To develop and manage community programs, Community Correctional Services (CCS) partners with a broad range of organisations, including:
- community groups
- charitable and not-for-profit organisations
- non-profit educational institutions
- state, federal and local government agencies.
The partnerships between CCS and Community Work Partner Agencies are integral to the success of the Community Work Program.
Guidelines for Community Work Partner Agencies provides comprehensive information about administrative and management requirements for community work programs and outlines the basic principles governing the placement of offenders onto these programs.
Working with Community Correctional Services provides information on how a community organisation can partner with CCS, so that offenders can attend and work at their sites. It includes examples of the types of work already done by offenders who are on community orders and outlines some current partnerships.
