This Request for Tender is seeking tenders from not-for-profit organisations for the provision of support services, under the Transitional Support Stream of the Funded Partnership Initiative (FPI). Offenders receiving this service have been assessed as having a medium-high to high risk of reoffending and are under the supervision of Community Corrections.
The ITS service locations being tendered for are; Bathurst, Dubbo, Campbelltown, Kempsey, Lismore, Mount Druitt, Newcastle, Parramatta, Tamworth (0.5FTE), Wagga Wagga, Wollongong and Wyong. The service provider’s full-time or part-time caseworker will be working with Community Corrections officers and the offender to deliver the offender’s CSNSW case plan for up to 12 weeks providing AOD, Mental Health, access to suitable accommodation and other skills assistance. Portability and flexibility is required if demand data indicates a need to review geographic location and/or full-time or part-time operation due to volume of referrals.
