Travel assistance for visits

If you have a child who is visiting a parent in prison or you are a parent traveling to visit a child under 18 years of age in prison you may be eligible to apply for the Child Travel Fund.

The Child Travel Fund provides financial support to eligible children traveling to visit a parent in prison. The fund also supports parents traveling to visit a child who is under 18 years of age and in prison.

This fund is now available and administered through local Prisoners' Aid and Rehabilitation Society (PARS) and Salvation Army offices.

For more information and to apply for funding help, contact PARS in Auckland by email info@pars.co.nz or 09 630 0862. Or you can send a message from their website www.pars.co.nz.
