TIAKI TANGATA SERVICE IN PRISONS
Our Tiaki Tangata Service is provided by Patrick Tavai.
Pat has profound experience working with offenders and reintegrating them back into the community. This ranges from delivery of violence prevention programmes, community probation services and as a member of the NZ Parole Board.
Pat has extensive communication and relationship management skills which he has provided to those he comes into contact with, from local whānau and communicates to government and corporate agencies.
Why Tiaki Tangata?
For offenders who are near release, our Tiaki Tangata Reintegration Service is available at some prisons and Community Probation Service Centres and can help you get into training or find work. You’ll also get support to find somewhere to live, and connect with whanau or community groups before you leave.
