This is done by MOSAC workers engaging on a voluntary basis with individual clients in the last 2-4 months of their prison sentence, in order to build a relationship of trust. This relationship enables an accurate assessment, via a Transition Plan, of each client’s capacity, and barriers to work. The workers also link the clients with specialist assessors and employment providers.

Men and Family Relationships (MFR)

Men and Family Relationships (MFR) is a contract with Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS) under its Family and Relationship Services program. This service provides counselling, information, advocacy and referral services to vulnerable and disadvantaged men and their families, who are often dealing with complex challenges, including substance abuse, mental health, homelessness, and violence, as well as relationship breakdown.

Drop In

Drop In provides a safe space (men only) for clients of the MOSAC Mens Health & Wellbeing program, and for any homeless, isolated or otherwise vulnerable men to build relationships with each other and/or MOSAC workers.

Other agencies use this space to deliver information and education sessions to the Drop In clients including Kimberley Mental Health & Drug Service.
