Make a difference
Case managers (Kaiwhakahaere Kēhi) work directly with people in prison from the moment they arrive through to their release. Their focus is to help people self-identify a need for change and provide opportunities for them to access treatment and programmes at the right time.
Case managers spend about 20% of their time working face-to-face with individuals, 20% working with whānau, and the balance writing reports, case notes and overseeing a multi-disciplinary approach to individual change. They work closely with teams across Corrections including Probation, and with external organisations such as the New Zealand Parole Board, NGO’s, Police and Oranga Tamariki.
