Jail is failing in terms of rehabilitation. In order to break the cycle of incarceration, people need access to support services both in and out of prison. People need access to post-release support, help to address homelessness, and access to education, drug and alcohol treatment, and genuine work opportunities. Sadly, under current arrangements, in every part of Australia, these critical community and support programs are not resourced adequately, and in many cases don't exist at all.
