A grant funded the production of a guide for case managers working with prisoners to identify legal issues and take practical steps to assist with and refer legal issues.
The Victorian Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders created an online publication titled Prisoner legal issues for case managers: a practical guide. This grant allowed the association to engage a graphic designer who completed the layout of the publication.
The guide outlines some of the common legal issues faced by prisoners, allowing case managers to identify legal issues and where possible take practical steps to assist with and refer a legal issue. The guide also provides a list of relevant, low-cost or free legal services for referral purposes.
