Financial literacy sessions at Port Phillip Prison

Small Grant
2012/2013
$5,000 (exc GST)
Grant number: 
S13-013

This grant developed a program in one of the prison’s units that could be rolled out to other units. It provided information about the credit and debt issues relevant to adult male prisoners and the type of resources best able to meet their needs while in prison and following their release.

The pilot program confirmed that a course in basic financial literacy for prisoners would be well received by participants and the prison staff. The program was of particular value for pre-release prisoners in the general units of the prison.
