Working with external organisations to reduce re-offending
Corrections cannot reduce re-offending on our own. We require the help of other government organisations, external organisations and non-governmental organisations.
Memorandums of Understanding
By signing Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with employers and other organisations, Corrections aims to secure greater involvement of these groups in providing paid work and other forms of support to offenders, which can be central to building the habits and skills of a lawabiding lifestyle.
Corrections also has MoUs with several government agencies, including the Ministry of Health, Housing New Zealand, the Tertiary Education Commission, NZ Police, the New Zealand Parole Board, Child, Youth and Family, and the Ministry of Social Development.
