Welcome to the Prisoners Aid Website
Prisoners Aid offers support to prisoners and their visitors.
Court Assistance and Referral Service (CARS)
CARS operates an office at the ACT Magistrates' Court, to provide a contact point for people at the Courts.
Families and friends are the most important part of a prisoner's life.We know that things do not always go smoothly in relationships and we have some ways to offer support.
Volunteers are not counsellors, but receive ongoing training to offer you the most useful and relevant support.
Volunteers are always welcome!Join our teams! We offer an exciting and challenging environment for people who want to help others. We offer training to help build your skills - there's something for everyone to do, easy and challenging, and not all of our work involves people work.
