Our after-prison support services aim to address issues such as homelessness, social isolation, mental health, and drug and alcohol use, by providing housing support, employment connections, education opportunities, support with family relationships and pathways out of financial hardship. We service the Newcastle and Upper Central Coast areas of NSW.

For more than 25 years Samaritans has worked with people leaving prison, helping them to re-establish their lives ‘on the outside’.


The support is tailored to the individual needs of each person but can often involve:

Support to find accommodation
Obtaining an ID and connecting with Centrelink
Opening a bank account
Help with shopping, cooking and setting up a home
Training and education
Pathways to paying off state debt
Recreational and social activities
